Louis Riel: A Comic-Strip Biography
Chester Brown
Drawn & Quarterly
Let’s face it, Canadian history is pretty dull. Once you take away the fur traders, Hudson’s Bay Company and the Plains of Abraham, what are you left with? Louis Riel, of course, our only real outlaw. Chester Brown revisits a familiar tale in simple six-panel, black & white on yellow pages, revealing the heart, the violence and the bureaucratic machinations of the Red River rebellion. This year saw the book released in a softcover edition, so for less than $20 (before federal taxes Riel wouldn’t have appreciated) you can give the gift of a Canadian historical illustrated biography that won’t bore.

Survey Asks

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
