The Canadian state sits outside of our popular conception of ourselves. Certainly, we as Canadian like to imagine ourselves as inhabiting a vast pristine wilderness of gorgeous mountain tops and uninterrupted prairie - and yet, this popular imaging of Canada bears little resemblance to the reality. In fact, Canada is an urban nation whose growth and development has been driven by access to waterways and whose population, now more than ever, will spend the majority of their lives within a stones throw of the American border. Inevitably, it would seem that the structure of the Canadian state is metropolitan in nature.
