John Ralston Saul on The Métis Nation

in: hosted by Rebecca Brayton

John Ralston Saul on The Métis Nation Thoughts of Canada’s identity often turn to multiculturalism and social equality, as well as an ability to adapt to a unique climate. In his book, A Fair Country, philosopher, author and essayist Dr. John Ralston Saul submits that these qualities were not an accident – they were gained from exposure to Canada’s Métis nation. The Métis are one of the country’s three officially recognized aboriginal peoples. In this video, WatchMojo.com speaks with Saul about his book and his assertion that Canada’s identity is largely based on that of the Métis nation.
