“We know too little about ourselves …. I say, only the stories we tell each other — about ourselves, about each other — can sustain us, because only the stories we tell each other create us as a society, as a nation, as a true Canadian people.”

Rudy Wiebe, author, two-time Governor General’s Award for Literature winner. Officer of the Order of Canada.

“We’ve seen firsthand the respect that Canada’s music gets in other parts of the world. The support we’ve traditionally given our creators is also well-recognized. But Canada should have an updated system that continues to treat artists fairly, especially as technological changes make it more difficult for them to be compensated for their work.”

Suzie Ungerleider, Professional Musician, Oh, Susanna
