Millions of Canadians crave a good mental challenge, and in order to feed their hunger many turn to the daily crossword puzzle in their local newspaper. Often, however, before they even get to 1-Across, they must stop thinking qin Canadianq and shift cultural gears. It is a sad reality that Canada just doesn't figure highly in what is undoubtedly one of our favourite pastimes: solving the daily crossword. The crosswords in this book contain plenty of references to this country: its heroes and rogues, its geography, sports, history, arts, - its qCanadian-ness.q Here the solver might discover a Knowlton, a Gzowski, an Iqaluit, or maybe even a Come By Chance. Our Canadian spelling is recognised as well, in words such as qcolourq and qcentreq, and there is also a sprinkling of French, in keeping with the bilingual nature of this land. These puzzles appeal to a broad range of solvers, from the dabbler at testing the waters to the seasoned crossword pro looking for a serious cranial workout. Many puzzles are themed and titled. Other, perhaps more challenging puzzles are themeless. While the puzzles vary in difficulty and style, they share one critical thing.
