Canada’s Postnationlism | The Guardian
My piece on The Canada experiment: is this the world’s first ‘postnational’ country? for The Guardian, especially apt for this era of nationalism and fear. Thanks Chris Michael for the fascinating gig. Nice to read something lately that has some hope.
“Canada’s incomplete identity is, in this sense, a positive, a spur to move forward without spilling blood, to keep thinking and evolving – perhaps, in the end, simply to respond to newness without fear.” – Charles Foran.
“When Justin Trudeau said, ‘there is no core identity, no mainstream in Canada’, he was articulating a uniquely Canadian philosophy that some find bewildering, even reckless – but could represent a radical new model of nationhood.” – Charles Foran.
