Oh Canada! Where is Your Literature?

Interesting factoid: according to The Globe and Mail a very small percentage of Canadian schools offer courses in Canadian literature. Despite there being a wealth of authors from Canada, it seems that they too often fall back on classics from abroad instead of going local.

Either way, it seems to be a problem. There are five reasons total listed in the article, so check it out! :)
