About the Book ... its myths are an outstanding part of Canadian life, shaping and swaying each Canadian from conception to interment. O Can attempts to portray a typical Canadian buffeted in the context of a few of our more pleasant myths. Yet O Can is a mere introductory outline of the astonishing array of contemporary Canadian myths: those who are deeply concerned about the great truth of these myths, who know more about them and are capable of a more searching, portraiture, may paint them more truly as they really are, to the people they are about - their fellow Canadians. Excerpts from the preface to O Can.
