Reviews

incomplete history but good


(5 stars)

This series would be better titled "the Chronicles of Colonial Canada". The sections on Indigenous peoples is grossly incomplete, problematic, and written from a deeply colonial worldview. However as a text exploring the history of European colonization of Canada it is very interesting. If you are looking for an introduction to the complete history of Canada this is not it, but as a primer for the Settler/Colonizer perspectives of its history it is excellent.

A must listen for every Canadian
