Description:
Jeff Pearce's irreverent romp through the annals of the history of the English in Canada: * This was the territory that England used as the staging ground for many battles and wars with the French and the Americans * It was an Englishman, John Graves Simcoe, who enacted the first anti-slavery act for the entire British Empire...right here in Canada! * Sir Isaac Brock was a larger-than-life hero of the war of 1812, who dared a duelist to shoot at him from the distance of the width of a handkerchief and who bluffed his way into capturing Detroit * Get to know the fabulous fraud Grey Owl, who didn't want to be an Englishman at all and who started the conservationist movement * Our English connects help explain the October Crisis, an episode in our history still greatly misunderstood * The British North America Act (BNA) governed Canada until our constitution was repatriated in 1981. * So make yourself a cup of tea and tuck into an insightful and intriguing chronicle of how there will always be an England...in Canada.
