Canada's Immigrants, Heroes and Countrymen
Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, Touch BASE. 2001. (ISBN: 0973000007). Paperback. Book, Clean tightly bound copy. Unmarked pages. Unread."Canada's Immigrants, Heroes and Countrymen tells the story of Canada's people since its early history. But it is, importantly, an account of how our immigration policy has evolved over the last one hundred years. In reviewing modern-day immigration to Canada, the book carries narratives on the socio-political and economic paradigms in Europe, South Asia and Asia Pacific, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa, through this century, which forced the flight of some of our immigrants ourt of their coutnries to seek refuge in Canada and other parts of the world. World War II, as everyone knows, was the primary cause of the mass refugee phenomenon and currently it is ethnic conflict that's blossoming on the stems of a new nationalism. The focus of this new title, however, is people. It tells the stories of immigrants across Canada who have achieved great success, demonstrated heroic courage in the transition process and who continue to give Canada their heart and soul. The people profiled include scientists, doctors and neurosurgeons, politicians, senators and even a former premier, sports heroes, authors, lawyers, journalists, businessmen, film makers, academics, some of whom came to Canada as refugees. It is, indeed, to them and to this nation of immigrants that this book pays tribute." h4. As New.
