Description
Do you think of Canada as that "nice" country with free health care, majestic woodlands, and polite people?

Think again.

The CANADALAND Guide to Canada (Published in America) is an outrageous expose of Canada's secrets, scandals, and occasional awkward lapses in proper etiquette.

Inside, you'll find illustrations, maps, quizzes, and charts that answer the most pressing questions about Canadian history, politics, and culture, such as:

-Canadian cuisine and sexuality: Do they exist?
-What does "sorry" actually mean?
-Justin Bieber, Rob Ford, Malcolm Gladwell: Why?
-What is Quebec?
-Should I f*** the prime minister?

This absurd guide digs up everything from buried rage to buried oil, uncovering Canada's bizarre history and shocking present. One thing is certain: you'll never look at a Canadian the same way again.
