"Canadians have held a claim few others can make: we have our own national encyclopedia"
"A bilingual national edition produced by, for and about the people of a single country, charting its events, culture, history and landscape, remains rare."
"The Canadian Encyclopedia plays an essential role in providing Canadians and others with accurate, updated information about our people and country."
Melvin Hurtig, OC, publisher, political activist, author (born 24 June 1932 in Edmonton, AB; died 3 August 2016 in Vancouver, BC). In 1956, Hurtig opened a bookstore, Hurtig Books, in Edmonton.
