Examining cases such as the introduction of the Maple Leaf to replace the Canadian Red Ensign and Union Jack as the national flag, Champion shows that, despite what he calls Canada's "crisis of Britishness," Pearson and his supporters unwittingly perpetuated a continuing Britishness because they - and their ideals - were the product of a British world. Using a fascinating array of personal papers, memoirs, and contemporary sources, this ground-breaking study demonstrates the ongoing influence of Britishness in Canada and showcases the personalities and views of some of the country's most important political and cultural figures. An important study that provides a better understanding of Canada, The Strange Demise of British Canada also shows the lasting influence Britain has had on its former colonies across the globe.

About the Author:

C. P. Champion holds a PhD in history from McGill University and has advised the Canadian government on citizenship, multiculturalism, and heritage policy.

Review:

"The Strange Demise of British Canada is exceptionally well written, sensibly argued, and soundly organized. It is a wonderfully provocative work arranged around a fresh look at Canadian Britishness and will spark much debate and further investigation into the true nature of English-Canadian identity." Pat Brennan, Department of History, University of Calgary

"A splendid study of Canada's continuing pride of place in the British World." Phillip Buckner, Senior Research Fellow, Institute of Commonwealth Studies
