about this item

Do you know where Upper Canada is in relation to Lower Canada? Can you name the human cast members of The Littlest Hobo? Did you realize those were both trick questions?

Is Canada even real? It’s a question that’s being asked more and more, thanks to our waterproof, see-through, supposedly maple-scented currency and our improbably hot prime minister’s assertion that Santa lives here.

In the age of Google Maps and #factcheck, how could the existence of Canada be questioned? And yet how could a nation built of toboggans, Drake, and KD exist in the same realm as, say, Belgium or ******?

If you’ve ever wondered:
  • Why is the inuksuk more revered than Wheelchair Jimmy?
  • Does the iconic beaver really represent us better than The Littlest Hobo?
  • Is everyone going canoeing without me or is canoeing way less of a thing than it’s made out to be?
…Then this book is for you.

Is Canada Even Real examines the cultural factors behind the 21st-century monolithic myth of Canada, a nation that is weird, lovable, and real — if only in your imagination.
