As the authors observe pointedly: "It seems to have been assumed that to understand and observe English Canada was to love it and yearn for assimilation into it." Some of the book's many photographs capture the blatant incarnation of these values: "Miss Canada, Vegreville, 1927" and "Loyal Orange Lodge (parade), Wetaskiwin, 1937."
