I take a look at some lesser-known bits of Canadian history in today’s Canada Day edition of the National Post.
In today’s National Post, I take a look at how the opening of the Michael Lee-Chin crystal will affect the image of Toronto. It has been architecture week for me at the Post: in Thursday’s paper I covered the Pug Awards, which honour the best and worst in Toronto design; and on Friday I explored HtO, Toronto’s new “urban beach.”
The Post’s coverage of the humanities congress ends today with my examination of the Canadian canon and a discussion of the political memoir in Canada. Also, be sure to check out the Post in June for my (almost) daily look at the last month of Sam the Record Man.
