Canada Reads (fiction)

The CBC's annual book-we-all-read-palooza is called "Canada Reads" but only accepts fiction nominations. This year the Corp has reshaped the competition by pre-determining forty 21st century Canadian novels for a competition the great Canadian books novels of the new century.

An eclectic list, maybe a little skewed (as someone says in the comments at the link above) by those authors most effective in spurring on internet voting. Makes me wonder what the ten (forty seems ambitious, since we are not the CBC) essential Canadian history books -- or even nonfictions -- since 2000 might be.  Nominations gratefully received....
