The spell of the Great White North

JOHN DeMONT December 14 1998

For the 15th straight year, Maclean’s will explore the hopes and fears of Canadians in the most authoritative year-end portrait of the national mood.

In partnership with CBC’s The National, the magazine will present a 25-page report that answers such questions as:

Are people more or less optimistic going into 1999?

Are they better off or have their personal finances deteriorated?

Who do they trust to look after their affairs?

Who do they trust in Ottawa? How is their sex life?

The full portrait will be available in a 25-page report in Maclean’s Dec. 28, 1998 -Jan. 4, 1999 double issue, available on newsstands on Dec. 21, 1998.

This issue also will include the most memorable photo images of 1998.

Watch the CBC’s National Magazine for two special reports.

Monday, Dec. 21: The Canadian Condition —

Is the gap widening between rich and poor? ...Who will lead Canada into the new millennium?

...Will aliens look like us?

Tuesday, Dec. 22: Sex and Consequences —

Are moral standards different for politicians? ...Which province has the most sex? ... Would you let your 18-year-old daughter sleep with her boyfriend in your home?

CBC reporters from across the country will file the inside stories from Maclean’s/The National Year-End Poll.
