Historylab.ca’s Tom Villemaire has a list in the latest Maclean’s special edition, Book of Lists 2.
Villemaire cowrote two books with Randy Richmond, called Colossal Canadian Failures books one and two and Villemaire also has a podcast on failures of a more global nature called Things That Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time.
This list is a take off of the books.
Called Colossal Canadian Failures, it lists nine things that were laughable failures for Canada.
You can check out the list here: http://www2.macleans.ca/2013/06/22/9-colossal-canadian-failures/ so let us know what you think.
