Abstract:

Pt. 1. Provides a basic overview of the history and complex relationship between Canada and the United States, and Canada's struggle to assert and maintain its own identity. pt. 2. The idea is presented that Canadian identity stems from a sense of place. In searching for the Canadian national identity, Saturday Night, one of Canada's most important magazines, prepares its special, 100th anniversary edition. Since there is no one dominant culture or identity in Canada, the magazine sets out to create a psychological portrait of the quiet, introspective nation made up of people with strong values and passionate ideals. Compares Canada's paradoxical character with that of the United States. pt. 3 Traces the history of the Separatist Movement through the lives and activities of Pauline Julien, a singer, and Gerald Godin, a poet, journalist and politician, two people passionately involved in the efforts to make Quebec independent. pt. 4. Although the United States and Canada share a border and a close economic, social and political relationship, the two countries are based on very different cultural concepts: the "melting pot" and the "mosaic." Explores that multicultural mosaic, examining, in particular, its advantages and disadvantages to the immigrants and refugees that comprise much of it.
