Who Do We Think We Are at Library and Archives Canada

What does it really mean to be a Canadian? If you have the opportunity, either in association with #OGSConf2017, or any other time until the end of February, take in the exhibit at 395 Wellington in Ottawa which addresses the question.
The exhibition contains a number of seldom-seen materials including a leather-bound book Les Voyages du Sieur de Champlain and the map attached to it, published in 1613. Also the only surviving journal of Catharine Parr Traill. There's much more.
The exhibition is one of several places LAC treasures will be on display for Canada 150. In Ottawa/Gatineau they include the Canadian Museum of History (Museum of Civilization) and the Library of Parliament.
