The persistence of misconceptions about Italian-Canadian food culture raises many questions for us. Are we gluttonous, inebriate and too loud? Do we force-feed guests? Are we in fact food-obsessed? How many grains of truth can a stereotype hold? We had to know, so we asked articulate and thoughtful Italian-Canadian writers and simpatico friends from British Columbia to Newfoundland. The responses were surprising, thoughtful, entertaining and often touching, making my co-editor, Delia De Santis, and I very glad we asked, as every piece which streamed over the internet? ether was a gift and a joy to read. And the result is Italian Canadians at Table, a passionate literary feast of poetry and prose.

Good Enough from Here

Good Enough from Here is a compelling work of creative nonfiction, an artifact of Canadiana, set in the real-life geographical and historical context of Canadian Forces Station (CFS) ALERT on the northern tip of Ellesmere Island in the late 1970s. Considered at the time Canada's most northerly permanently inhabited location, the small, orange civilization within the base perimeter serves as a stage for the interplay of relationships among companions, father figures, military culture--perhaps a micro-prophecy of the country and its future within the Inuit animism of the landscape itself. The tale traces the unlikely journey of a band of young men from a small southern Ontario town to the expanse of Canada's High Arctic. Part of an environmental clean-up crew, they confront the technological spoor and detritus accumulated since the station's founding in 1950. The Midnight Sun, the sheer isolation, even the magical realism of certain rooms in certain buildings call out to each of them. Good Enough from Here is, in the author's words, "a quirky environmental tale of the transformation of an irreverent society of youthful 'Frozen Chosen' into a primitive state of young manhood"--a coming-of-age story taking a bird's-eye view of military culture from a civilian's perspective.

Italians came to Canada to seek a better life. From the 1870s to the 1920s they arrived in large numbers and found work mainly in mining, railway building, forestry, construction, and farming. As time passed, many used their skills to set up successful small businesses, often in Little Italy districts in cities like Montreal, Toronto, Hamilton, and Winnipeg. Many struggled with the language and culture in Canada, but their children became part of the Canadian mix. When Canada declared war on Italy on June 10, 1940, the government used the War Measures Act to label all Italian citizens over the age of eighteen as enemy aliens. Those who had received Canadian citizenship after 1922 were also deemed enemy aliens. Immediately, the RCMP began making arrests. Men, young and old, and a few women were taken from their homes, offices, or social clubs without warning. In all, about 700 were imprisoned in internment camps, mainly in Ontario and New Brunswick. The impact of this internment was felt immediately by families who lost husbands and fathers, but the effects would live on for decades. Eventually, pressure from the Italian Canadian community led Prime Minister Brian Mulroney to issue an apology for the
