"Get ready for a satirical look at the most sacred of Canada's sacred cows - the institutions and national treasures (animate and inanimate) that make up this wacky, wonderful place we call home. From A (pronounced eh) to Zed (Gzowski without aG) nothing escapes Allan Gould's biting wit. In the Great Wiped Out North you'll follow Gould as he uncovers Canada's national shrine to absenteeism.You'll discover why our politicians have been advising us 'to cut down on unnecessary fishing, move down wind, and, as our cigarette packages have been urging us for years, quit inhaling.' You'll learn that VIA Rail's SystemTimetable won the Governor General's Award for Fiction in 1986. Come with Gould as you meet the scourge of the nation, 'Attila the Honey,' whose clarion call of 'right is might' has sent shivers down the spineless backs of Giorgio Armani outfits everywhere. Drop in with Gould on the Bank of Canada,our last defence against a cashless society. The puns, zingers and five-fi nger salutes keep coming in this rollicking excursion through the corridorsand byways, the bedrooms and wardrobes of this nation - all brought to you with the kind co-operation of CSIS, without which this book would not be p ossible." - from the dj.
