Blondie’s back; a ba­con lover’s cock­tail; why girl spies are tak­ing over TV; the best new Cana­dian mu­sic and lit­er­a­ture.

We have se­ri­ously cool

home­grown talent.

I won­der some­times if I have a lot of Cana­dian pride. The con­cept of na­tional iden­tity seems vague and strangely “us vs. them.” (Who is “them” in the face of glob­al­iza­tion any­way?) While help­ing to put this is­sue to­gether, how­ever, I quickly re­al­ized that much of the talent we hap­pened to be vib­ing on is Cana­dian. Co­in­ci­dence? Not likely. It served as a re­minder that our coun­try is not only pretty bang­ing in the scenery depart­ment but it also has a cul­tural legacy that com­mands pride. KATHRYN HUD­SON
