Rick Green exposes the myths of Confederation and skewers the nations’ leaders showing how Canada’s battle to be free of Britain was more a case of Britain pushing us away.
Starting from the days of Cabot and Cartier, we see how this French colony of Canada became British. Wolfe and Montcalm’s battle for The Plains of Abraham is recreated using robots and bat creatures. Rick compares the bloodbath of the American Revolution to the booze-ups behind Canadian Confederation. A parade of plucky Prime Ministers reveals how the True North Strong and Free was the result of chance, chicanery, and double dealing. It’s the shocking, funny and outrageous story of a bunch of small colonies who went from being Mother Britain’s ‘momma’s boy’ to a world leader in niceness.
