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.

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
