Canada's Fluid Borders
Excerpt

''Popular understanding may conceive of borders as formal boundaries separating the territories of different countries – or perhaps the administrative locations ("ports of entry") at which individuals or goods pass from the territory of one country to another. However, the continuing growth and diversification of trade, investment, travel, and various forms of migration increase the importance and interaction of bordering processes.''

Canada's Best | La grande littérature du Canada
Excerpt

These are the words we have chosen to remember. They are the stories that have touched our imagination. They are the rhymes we teach our children as we drive to the beach in the summer. They are the artwork we share with our grandchildren as we sit by a warm winter fire. In peacetime and in war, they have taught us our history. In good times and bad, they have given us glimpses into our future. Over the decades, they have helped us discover who we are and where we have come from. They have introduced us to our neighbours and helped us bridge our two solitudes. Generation after generation, they have given voice to a nation’s dreams and aspirations, and they have done it with grace and wit and learning and style. These are the books that have won the Governor General’s Literary Awards of Canada.

More Info
Excerpt

“’A more skeptical view (…) explains the current managerial state of higher education in this province as the result of competing fields of power. These were evidenced within and without the University of Ottawa as it moved towards a non-denominational university. This dour perspective pitted nominally papal and Ontarian sovereignties against each other in a battle that was being simultaneously fought across Canada—and, in fact, across the Western world—for a more distinct separation of Church and state.’’
