Goodbye Beaver Lake

Details

Popularity: Page View: 800 Site Visit: 15

Goodbye Beaver Lake is a saga of a society torn asunder by French-Canadian nationalists hellbent on Quebec's secession from Canada. It might be described as a historical/political metaphor, recounting some of the momentous events which have occurred in the Province of Quebec between the late 50s and present day. The story also dips back into the 30s and 40s.

Description: Goodbye Beaver Lake
Goodbye Beaver Lake may also be described as a political satire and a polemic. It is an amalgam of political unrest and intrigue, nationalism, fascism, anti-Semitism and terrorism -- in short, my attempt to deal with what has happened to Quebec and Canada during the course of two generations. There are certain universal truths to be found in the political unrest in Quebec. It is high time that they be treated by literature, something which has so far gone wanting, due, in large measure, to the inherently politically timid nature of Canadians.
