Canada experiences a postwar boom, but some are unhappy with the status quo and seek to reshape the country, while dark legacies of injustice are challenged. The circle of Confederation grows and the country emerges as a complex and cosmopolitan nation on the world stage.
Leading up to Confederation, Canada faces the threat of American expansionism. Determined that Canada will remain independent and free, a generation of risk-takers, gold miners, cowboys and railway-men will rise to the challenge.
Series premiere. A study of the diverse people, places and events that shaped Canada begins with the arrival of European newcomers and centuries of Indigenous traditions facing sudden change, as France and England compete to rule the continent.
