Summary:
"Humour is at the core of Canadian identity because we have a truly unique way of looking at ourselves and at the world. Our greatest joy is found in irreverence, poking fun at our own stereotypes - shorts in the snow, beavers in the bush, love in a canoe - or by tweaking the nose of the grumbling giant to the South.

Abstract:

"Humour is at the core of Canadian identity because we have a truly unique way of looking at ourselves and at the world. Our greatest joy is found in irreverence, poking fun at our own stereotypes - shorts in the snow, beavers in the bush, love in a canoe - or by tweaking the nose of the grumbling giant to the South. We see the chaotic and the absurd all around us, and through irony, parody, and satire we laugh when facing the truth, or at times to avoid crying. What a nation finds funny, and how it embraces humour, is key to what makes a nation great. And we are a great nation! This collection of 35 stories showcases the diversity of our amazing sense of humour through all-new short fiction, from a broad spectrum of backgrounds, persuasions, genders, and visions, uniting regional and cultural expression in a way never done before."--
