For Canada’s Sake offers a fresh perspective and welcome break from this tired discourse. For author Gary Miedema, the question is not when Canada became a secular nation per se, but the role of religious institutions in the discourse of national identity. Calls for religious relevance were nothing new by the 1960s; however, Miedema argues that much more was at stake this time. The mainline Christian churches were losing their privileged position in the discourse of national identity; thus, their efforts to shape the national culture at this juncture pointed to the role they would play in the post-Christian social and political climate that followed.
