2008 Dafoe Book Prize Shortlist Announced

Thursday, Apr 03, 2008 at 9:10am

Jurists for the 23rd John Wesley Dafoe Book Prize have released their shortlist.

The book prize memorializes John Wesley Dafoe one of the most significant Canadian editors of the 20th century. It is one of the richest book awards for good non-fiction about Canada, Canadians and the nation in international affairs. In his tenure at the Manitoba Free Press, later renamed the Winnipeg Free Press, from 1901-1944, Dafoe was known for his advocacy of western development, free trade and national independence. His case for adoption by Britain of the Statute of Westminster in 1931 severed formal ties with Empire and created the dominions which became the nucleus of the Commonwealth.
