About The World Without Canada
Narrated by Dan Aykroyd, The World Without Canada is a three part TV special that celebrates our physical, intellectual and historical achievements by imagining the realities and repercussions of life on Earth with our contributions suddenly gone. This thought experiment speculates on the global impact of a world without Canada and the catastrophic consequences that might unfold. Set up as a collection of theme-based stories, the series focuses on Canadian contributions and identity through a unique lens that is informative, dramatic and celebratory. With impressive CGI graphics illustrating catastrophic consequences, The World Without Canada pulls viewers into an alternate mind-bending reality that depicts the startling global ripple effects that could occur if Canada's contributions failed to exist. The series features commentary from notable Canadian experts including: data scientist and futurist, Juliette Powell; acclaimed sci-fi author, Robert J. Sawyer; historian David O’Keefe; and Merritt Turetsky, professor of ecology at Guelph University.
