Excellent documentation of Canada and Canadians
2 June 2004 | by (calgary) – See all my reviews

this is a very powerful documentary. its fully involved and takes no short cuts. it is very thorough and explains events in great detail. the history is accurate and fair to all involved.

there is a healthy mix of both history (which you learn in school) and interesting little tidbits (that you don't learn in school).

the entire show - from the commentary to the acting out of events to the history lessons - are displayed in a very inviting and warm way. the creators and writers, etc. must really love Canada, because they sure put a lot of work into this piece of art.

i'm always on the lookout for this to have another run on CBC and you should too. 10/10.
