On any ordinary day in Canada, extraordinary things happen. Canadians have remarkable stories to tell. And for the past 75 years, the CBC has enabled us to share those stories with each other. Join in the celebration of this rich heritage with a special CBC/Radio Canada documentary that gave all Canadians the chance to play a role in a one-day collective self-portrait, coast to coast. For 24 hours, CBC crews spanned the country to follow some of Canada’s most fascinating figures — among them new citizens, an aboriginal hockey star, an ER physician, a military family and many more. 1 Day also draws on videos and photos sent in by Canadians who seized this unique opportunity to provide a glimpse into their lives, their families, their communities.
