Product description


"Freed is a worthy Leacock laureate." --Globe & Mail

"Let's declare [Freed] a national monument." --Montreal Gazette

From the Back Cover

This hilarious new collection pokes fun at fat cats, bureaucrats, sign laws, snow storms, HAZARDOUS WARNING labels, second-hand steak fumes, quiet Canadians, noisy Americans, and other fax of Canadian life. From the Curse of the Constitution to the Neverendum-Referendum, from freezing in winter to frying in summer, it's not easy to be a Canadian! You must know your height in centimetres, then convert to Celsius and add GST. Our country works well in practice, but not in theory.
