Confederation Drive by Janice MacDonald
It’s a story of the author’s road trip across Canada that she made, with her husband, in 2015– using almost the same route as when she did the trip with her mother on the way to Montreal Expo in 1967. The book sometimes felt less like a memoir and more like a project (which it was– she was taking the trip 2 years before 2017, so she could publish it in time for Canada’s 150th and Expo’s 50th), as it sometimes felt a bit rushed, and had a really surprising multitude of editing errors.
But I love road trips and road trip books (and movies), so the book was a treat– I read it with Google Maps open as I traced her route through places in Eastern Canada I have yet to see.
Independence, Democracy, Pluralism, Audacity, Perseverance. This is Canada and us. Yesterday becomes today’s history and I thoroughly enjoyed (a bit skeptical at first) how the author interpreted significant individuals, their actions and personalities which played a significant role in shaping Canada and who we are as a society.
