What People are Saying About This

Kevin O’Neill

“The data and analysis in Canadians and Their Pasts are, to my knowledge, totally unique; but more important, they have a host of implications for all those professionals whose work is related to Canadians’ engagement with the past – teachers and professors, museum professionals, preservationists, media producers, and broadcasters, among others. This book presents an important and sometimes quite surprising set of findings in an accessible way, and this is no mean feat.”
