We Are Canada is a short story of Canada that begins at the end of the last ice age and carries through to the present day. It is an eighty-page telling of our history that challenges three Canadian myths:  that the French were a conquered people, that our First Nations were innocent bystanders in the formation of our country, and that Canada only had two founding peoples. According to Rikia Saddy, we've been multicultural from the start.  An informative, easy read, We Are Canada will change the way you see your country. We can't be divided, and we can't be conquered. We are Canada.

Editorial Reviews

"A short history with a big heart. A timely reminder of who we are, written to be re-read so we never forget." Mark Kelley, CBC"We Are Canada is a deceptively simple book with some powerful truths about our country." Jamie Broadhurst, Raincoast Books"This is a gem of a book, playful, concise, intelligent and hopeful. Rikia manages to dispel some of the more popular myths about our country while presenting a much more accurate and compelling version of Canadian history. With endearing illustrations by Cameron McLellan this deceptively child-like book is suitable for anyone of any age who wants to know more about our country. Bravo." Brad Fraser, playwright
