An Idea of Canada follows the summer journey taken by Governor General Adrienne Clarkson and her husband, John Ralston Saul, to Canada’s three seacoasts. Travelling by boat, small plane, snowmobile, pickup truck and canoe, they encounter every kind of weather as they visit western Nunavut, Newfoundland, Labrador and Haida Gwaii (Queen Charlotte Islands). A meditation on the myth and reality of the rugged landscape that symbolizes Canada for most people.
