Produced in collaboration with Information Canada, a branch of what’s now the Department of Foreign Affairs, this sponsored short film is an ad for national unity in Canada. In this satirical view of Canadian society, a series of images and words illustrate various prejudices, serving as a pretext to show that despite their differences, Canadians from all backgrounds form a unified nation thanks to federalism. Today, some of the cultural depictions and language in the film are considered outdated and offensive.
A cartoon film about the whole heterogeneous mixture of Canada and Canadians, and the way the invisible adhesive called federalism makes it all cling together. That the dissenting voices are many is made amply evident, in English and French. But this animated message also shows that Canadians can laugh at themselves and work out their problems objectively.
