In this passionate, thought-provoking vision for Canada, Ken Dryden argues that we have paid a price for having the wrong sense of ourselves as a country. The old definition of Canada #x13; genial but sometimes too self-deprecating and ambition-killing #x13; is no longer the real story. Through recent global events such as Barack Obama#x19;s election and first year in office; the climate conference in Copenhagen; and even the 2010 Winter Olympics, Dryden explores the clash between politics and story, and the importance of a nation finding its true narrative in order to thrive. By tracing the ups and downs in contemporary Canadian politics, from the Liberal leadership race to Stephen Harper#x19;s Conservative minority governments, Michael Ignatieff#x19;s appointment as Opposition leader, and prorogation, Ken Dryden presciently identifies the obstacles facing Canada. He observes a sea change taking place among Canadians, who want something more for their country. The ambition of Canada#x19;s policies and the nature of our politics will not change, Dryden says, until we conceive of a new story for the nation. Becoming Canadais at once a celebration of Canada and a timely, ardent rallying cry to all Canadians to build upon Canada#x19;s unique place in the world. It is certain to inspire new conversations about our Canada#x19;s identity at home and abroad. From the Hardcover edition.
