Stuart McLean on his book Welcome Home

The Story


Radio broadcaster and author Stuart McLean talks to Midday host Valerie Pringle about his new book, Welcome Home: Travels in Small-town Canada. In order to “get at the essence, at the heart of the country,” he visited and wrote about seven small towns across Canada: Maple Creek, Sask., Dresden, Ont., Foxwarren, Man., Nakusp, B.C., Ferryland, Nfld., and Saint-Jean-de-Matha, Que. On the way, he says he discovered history and “quintessentially Canadian” characters.
