    THE SUNDAY EDITION How the Vimy myth was created, and why it's wrong to perpetuate it

    If there's one thing bitter political foes can agree on, it's that the World War 1 battle of Vimy Ridge was the smithy in which Canadian nationhood was forged. But some historians take issue with this. They argue that the Vimy narrative of heroism, unity and triumph, was non-existent in the years after the war — that it was invented for purely political aims many decades later. Ian McKay is the L.R. Wilson Chair in Canadian History at McMaster University. He's the co-author, along with Jamie Swift, of "The Vimy Trap: Or, How We Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Great War."

    THE SUNDAY EDITION Using comics to explore foreign reporting and the isolation of being held hostage

    In recent decades, there has been an explosion of comics and graphic novels dealing with very weighty subjects ... like grief, war, foreign politics and even the Holocaust. French-Canadian cartoonist Guy Delisle is renowned for his graphic novel travelogues, and his new book, "Hostage", is an intimate exploration of the experience of being kidnapped. Sarah Glidden made a name for herself with her graphic novel, "How to Understand Israel in 60 Days or Less," and her new book is "Rolling Blackouts: Dispatches from Turkey, Syria and Iraq."
