Tapestry of voices from across the country, Canadians new and old; some well known achievers like artist Mary Pratt, writers Sharon Butala, Isabel Huggan, Alberto Manguel and Shani Mootoo, designer Bruce Mau, Blue Rodeo's Jim Cuddy, composer Alexina Louie, hockey player Hayley Wickenheiser, columnist Margaret Wente; some unknown young artists, students, an aid worker, filmmakers, immigrants and the parents of a peacekeeper killed by a land mine. In addition, comedian Bette MacDonald performs several short monologues on various themes.
