Artists illuminate the spirit of our nation, whether they are painters, musicians, writers, dancers, actors, or even the philosophers who explain the effects of the arts on our lives.

 

“Their works call to my very soul,” Emily Carr wrote when she first met the painters of the Group of Seven. “They are big and courageous. I know they are building an art worthy of our great country, and I want to have my share, to put in a little spoke for the West, one woman holding up my end.” Emily Carr certainly held up her end. Her magnificent paintings express the mood, the mystery and the soul of the West Coast.

 

Thirty years after the Group of Seven produced their portraits of Canada, French-speaking Montréalers began to seek an artistic language to convey the complex reality of their changing society. Under the leadership of painter Paul-Émile Borduas, this group of artists laid the foundations for a social and artistic revolution.

 

During the hard times of the Great Depression, a young woman from the Gaspé, known simply as La Bolduc, laid the foundations of the Québec chanson.

 

These Minutes illustrate Canada's artistic spirit.

A hero is someone who is willing to put himself on the line to help others. Heroes are often ordinary people who make extraordinary decisions in times of crisis.

 

Maurice Ruddick, one of the few black men employed at the Springhill mine in Nova Scotia, saved the lives of six other miners when they became trapped.

 

Today's comic books owe a great deal to the “man of steel” we know as Superman. The first great superhero, created by Toronto-born Joe Shuster and his high school buddy Jerry Siegel, became the first comic book best-seller, creating generations of imitators and spawning an entire industry.

 

These Minutes recognize some of Canada's heroes.
