I'd hope no one (at least no one here) would flame someone over a scholarly research project.
Thanks for giving us access, as mentioned I'll try to find time to give it a substantial look.
Well I'd sure hope people wouldn't flame it.. but going on to explain through analysis things about the fabric of the Canadian identity is a daring task, so that's why I'm overly careful about it. If I get it wrong or the tone is too self-assure, it might become a flawed piece. The native, amateur feedback (over academic) is what in my mind gives the paper its final verdict. Even the Finnish staff at my North American Studies Program faculty can't match that.
And thank you for reading!
