In today’s Big Story podcast, a lot of us are lucky enough that we’ve never thought of Canada Day as anything but a day off to enjoy all the country has to offer, and to celebrate the story we tell ourselves about this land. It’s a good story, honestly. But as so many of us have learned over the past year—it’s not true.
So today we’ll hear some perspectives on Canada Day from people whose stories don’t often get heard on July 1, and maybe that can help us see what is both great and terrible about this country.
