Canada – More Than Just Anne Murray

What kind of culture does Canada project to the rest of the world? To itself? “I moved to Toronto in April, 1996, and have been slowly discovering that Canada (as a land, as people, as a political identity) and its culture are not always in sync. This is not necessarily a bad thing. A place where fringe, marginal or esoteric sensibilities come to stand for a whole country can’t be that bad. But it may account for the lack of interest in Canadian popular culture locally. If you don’t see your life reflected in your own culture, why look in the first place?”
