globeandmail.com: First ‘postnational' state? Baloney!
March 13, 2009 | Globe and Mail Update | JENNIFER WELSH
reviews "Who We Are: A Citizen's Manifesto", by Rudyard Griffiths,
Douglas & McIntyre, 232 pages, $29.95. [ Agincourt District 971 GRI ]
The central myth that Who We Are sets out to challenge is the one that
describes Canada's essence as its diversity and lack of a single
"national" story. In Canada, national identity plays second fiddle to
ethnic and regional loyalties, and citizenship is a ticket to
entitlements, demanding very little in return. This at a time when
Canada, is confronting a host of challenges which will require a
collective will and purpose.
