Celebrating Canada’s 150th Birthday With A Neighborly Comparison

This Saturday, Canada will celebrate the 150th anniversary of its confederation, or the unification of the British colonies into one dominion. The festivities include a royal visit from the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall, countless festivals, monuments, cross-country tours and celebrations of First Nations and Métis culture. 

Worldview's Canadian transplant Amber Fisher will look at how Canada and the U.S. have evolved alongside each other for these 150 years, and what we can learn from each other with Canadian journalist and media critic, Jesse Brown. He’s co-author of the book The Canadaland Guide to Canada.
