We are not a civilization of European inspiration. We never have been.

In this startlingly original vision of Canada, renowned thinker John Ralson Saul argues that Canada is a Métis Nation, shaped by an aboriginal penchant for egalitarianism and for negotiation over violence. By failing to recognize this, we block our progress.

Another obstacle to progress, Saul contends, is that Canada has an increasingly ineffective elite, colonial and anti-intellectual, that doesn't know how to believe in Canada or Canadians.

Brilliantly conceived, witty and persuasively argued, A Fair Country will change how Canadians see themselves and their country.
