bush_cheney2004 Posted November 15, 2020 Report Share Posted November 15, 2020 (edited) Canadian nationalism has been declared extinct by its present prime minister, but Canada is far from being a "post national state". After methodically describing the history and evolution of Canadian nationalism through today, this chap concludes that Canada is forever doomed to define itself as "not American" because the newer left-wing brand of Canadian nationalism, just like the previous right-wing, pro-British brand of nationalism, demands exactly that. Hating America at some level is essential to this exercise and political framework, and has been from the very beginning. Will Canada ever be able to define its national identity and place in North America without using the United States as an essential foil ?
