Candy Palmater: 'I realized for the first time that colour matters here in Canada.'
6 questions with the comedian and Canada Reads panelist
Throughout 2017, we're asking Canadians, "What's your story?" When we sat down with comedian Candy Palmater, who's defending Katherena Vermette's The Break on this year's Canada Reads, we got to ask some of our favourite rapid-fire questions about the country: What historical moment would you go back and witness? What emoji best represents Canada? And what cheesy Canadian song do you secretly love?
Palmater also told us about a memorable road trip she took as a kid where she realized for the first time that skin colour matters in Canada.
