    For Canada 150 - Interesting views of Canada

    I am not a fan of non-fiction books. I mostly read and love historical novels, history given with a sprinkle of sugar to make it more enticing just like in Mary Poppins “Just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down in a most delightful way”. However, since it’s Canada 150 and I am a Canadian, I decided to take the plunge and revisit and learn about our history. I must say, up to Chapter 4, I thought I was back in class and was going to be quizzed on the material and needed to take notes! Once this feeling passed, I thoroughly enjoyed the book. So many things, we take for granted in our modern lives, we forget all the hardships our forefathers and foremothers went through: the English, the French, the Irish, the Scottish, the Chinese and how they lived and interacted with each other. Their lives were dictated by survival, they worked long physical hours, no city infrastructure, no electricity, no running water. Education was not a priority, the schooling system was defined by the work required on the farms, children had adult responsibilities. There was a patriarchal mentality back then. We meant well with our treatment of the First Nations, however, we never bothered to take into consideration their needs and wants. What we did was outright cruel and we do owe them. It has taken many years to recognize this and I hope we are able to right the wrong, and quickly. As we see and read in the book, Canada is forever changing and as Canadians, we adapt. I hope and thank all our forefathers/mothers, all our First Nations, all our different nationalities that makes Canada the country it is right now. May we live in peace, tolerance and acceptance of each other. I thank the author for a well written book. It has given me an insight and understanding to our past. Well worth the read, even if it didn’t have my sugar!
