His personal papers may hold the key to the many mysteries surrounding the "Confederation Debate". As Frieda goes through the papers she finds the stakes are much higher than realized. She wonders if she has the nerve to challenge the faceless men that keep such secrets. Frieda's father was involved but refuses to help. A colleague seems to be hatching schemes of his own. Even the restless phantoms of an untold history are stirred by Frieda's quest. But, in the end, if the truth will out, Frieda must act alone

Rick Mercer Report : the book by Rick Mercer ( Book )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Rick's celebrated rants are some of the sharpest political commentary to be found anywhere in the country's media, and certainly the funniest. They are featured here, along with other moments from the show -- including encounters with Conrad Black, Jean Chretien, and Anne Murray -- and many additional pieces, some of which first appeared on his website. Because when he's not jumping into a lake with David Suzuki or Bob Rae, or helping the leader of the Green Party kill a tree, Rick Mercer likes to relax by blogging. From Kabul

A nation worth ranting about Rick Mercer report from across Canada by Rick Mercer ( )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
All-new collection of furiously funny rants from the most recent seasons of the Rick Mercer Report plus three brilliantly written, previously unpublished pieces by Rick. Illustrated throughout with photos and snatches of dialogue from Rick's encounters and exploits across Canada. "[Mercer's] trademark one-camera rants against the Canadian parliamentary machine are more concise, and more believable, than any campaign ads." 'The Globe and Mail "The comedian of choice for viewers who read." 'Toronto Life "Canada's hottest TV comic." 'Maclean's "Week after week, Mercer continues to delight with his alternately giddy and cutting political humour." 'The Canadian Press "Canada's leading political satirist." 'The New York Times "A good rant is cathartic. Ranting is what keeps me sane. They always come from a different place. Take the prime minister, for example. Sometimes when I rant about him, I am angry; other times, I am just severely annoyed'it's an important distinction." 'Rick Mercer, from his introduction Within these pages you'll find every rant that Rick has so brilliantly and blisteringly delivered since the publication of his previous bestseller, Rick Mercer Report: The Book. Together these rants form a chronicle of human folly, mostly featuring politicians, of course, but with honorable mentions going to people who don't know how to use escalators and Canadian drivers who don't think they need snow tires. Is Mercer getting better or are the fools among us getting worse' Whatever the inspiration'Rick Mercer's ranting has never been stronger or more on target. There is a loud, cathartic laugh to be found on almost every page here'with the exception of Rick's impassioned rant on bullying in schools, words that touched thousands of Canadians, went viral and helped widen the debate on a major problem. Also reprinted here is the rant encouraging students to vote, which resulted directly in a campus ballot and outrage in Ottawa. (People still are still standing on the left on escalators, and the prime minister is still very much the man he was, but you can't win them all.) In addition, Rick has authored three new essays specially for this book: the hilarious behind-the-scenes story of his meeting with Rick Hansen, a hero who absolutely was not a disappointment in real life; a heartfelt reflection on public reaction to his bullying rant; and an account of his response'mystified, followed by delighted'to the news that he'd inspired a "vote mob." Illustrated throughout with photographs and dialogue from Rick's travels across Canada, A Nation Worth Ranting About will make you proud, will make you think, will make you almost as angry as Rick, and over and over again will make you laugh out loud
