Purported to be written by Dorie White and Betty Smythe, it was a bold attempt to capitalize on the Canadian content laws (i.e., get paid) by submitting this opus on the “building of this great nation”. Frankly, it was less than PC as we lampooned many iconic Canadian cultural touch points you can find in the National Film Board archives. However, and here’s the best part, we sent it to many publications and media outlets. We received responses from some of them. Some got the joke. Some were very polite in rejecting what we contended was part of our rich cultural heritage and worthy of distribution.
