"In their book Glorious & Free, authors Kim Bozak and Rita Field-Marsham are redefining how Canadians see themselves by shining a light on thirty-three daring individuals who, through the way they lead their lives, are revealing the most beautiful thing about this country: that here individuals are free to be whoever they dream themselves to be so long as they are courageous enough to embrace it. And when each one of us is free to live to the fullest expression of ourselves, the result is an intricately beautiful and ever-changing collective that is glorious and free."--

This book was a massive undertaking. How could you distill from hundreds of candidates the thirty-three finalists profiled in this book. We are introduced to Canadians from every discipline, and shown their passion for their chosen pursuits. Many spoke about a special person - a teacher, a coach, a mentor - who touched a chord in them and in essence woke them up to opportunities. Especially moving are the many expressions of gratitude for the willingness of Canadians to accept and nurture newcomers and those who are not mainstream, to view themselves as part of the global community with responsibilities beyond their national border, and to be proactive in working toward a better world future. I am humbled by and appreciative of the energy, dedication and joy with which these people live their lives. Yann Martel wrote a wonderful forward.
