John Ralston Saul on The MÃ©tis Nation
Thoughts of Canadaâ€™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 â€“ they were gained from exposure to Canadaâ€™s MÃ©tis nation. The MÃ©tis are one of the countryâ€™s three officially recognized aboriginal peoples. In this video, WatchMojo.com speaks with Saul about his book and his assertion that Canadaâ€™s identity is largely based on that of the MÃ©tis nation.
