Inspiring true stories of Canadians who have bravely faced danger, adversity and injustice When we think about courage, certain images come to mind: troops charging into battle; law enforcement facing down armed assailants; firefighters racing into a burning building. We think about those men and women who are willing to put their lives on the line for their country or for others, those remarkable people who run toward danger instead of away from it. But you don’t have to wear a uniform to be courageous. On any given day, ordinary Canadians exhibit courage in myriad ways. Some do so in the face of danger—like six-year-old Sophia LeBlanc, who, in the aftermath of a crash, escaped an upside-down and partially submerged minivan to get help for her family. Some do so by choosing to fight injustice instead of turning a blind eye—like McGill University student Tomas Jirousek, who supported other Indigenous students to push the school to change the troublesome name of its athletic teams. And some demonstrate courage when they overcome adversity—like Timea Nagy, whose experience as a survivor of human trafficking compelled her to become an advocate for others and a voice for change. In Canadian Courage: True Stories of Canada’s Everyday Heroes, you’ll meet thirty-five remarkable people—men, women, children and even an animal or two—who have shown remarkable courage in the face of danger, injustice and adversity. Their stories are moving, thrilling and, most of all, inspiring. They’ll leave you wondering whether you too have the ability to be courageous when it counts.

This book explored the empirical works on servant leadership, and underscored the qualities of servant leadership such as: empathy, listening, awareness, healing, conceptualization, stewardship, persuasion, foresight, building community and commitment to the growth of people, as better aligned with the values of Canadian nursing practice among other leadership styles and theories. Although the origin of the phrase “servant leadership” was coined by Robert Greenleaf in 1977, it is a fundamental flaw not to mention that the qualities and values of servant leadership model have been in existence in nursing from time immemorial. The philosophy of servant leadership is not fundamentally and essentially both distant and distinct from what nurses do in their care of patients. Since servant leadership is grounded in ethical and moral principles, this book explored the practicality and the relevancy of servant leadership, as well as the role of moral courage in creating healthy workplace that could transform both Canadian nursing practice and Canadian healthcare system.

April 24th, 1951,was a lonely, moon-lit night in Korea. On a godforsaken hill, a few hundred surrounded Canadian soldiers waited for the fight of their lives to begin. Soon, Chinese communist troops in their thousands, swarmed around them, plunging straight towards the Korean capital, Seoul. These Canadians were all that blocked the way. This is the story of the first battle by Canada’s first soldiers in the Korean War: the 2nd Battalion of Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry. These volunteers were straight from Central Casting: truck drivers, construction workers, kids just out of high school, and bored farm boys. Outnumbered and outgunned, this people’s army of amateurs beat off some of the toughest troops on earth. This battle that’s become a legend takes its name from a nearby peanut-sized village: Kapyong. It’s become a mythic Canadian story, except this is mythology that is true and real.

This fully illustrated history traces the Order of Canada from its establishment in 1967 to its place today as a national honour. Over the past fifty years more than six thousand Canadians have been appointed to the Order of Canada. Those who embody the motto of the Order through their efforts to “Desire a better country,” continue to be recognized by the Crown and their fellow Canadians with the familiar white snowflake insignia. This illustrated history traces the origins of the Order, from the debate surrounding Canadians accepting peerages and knighthoods that took place during the First World War, through to Vincent Massey and Lester Pearson’s great desire to see their fellow citizens recognized with a truly Canadian honour. Details about the design of the insignia, investitures, and prominent members of the Order of Canada are also included. Rich with illustrations and historical vignettes, this book provides an easily accessible window into the fascinating history of our pre-eminent national honour.
