Innis, Harold

1950s University of Toronto academic who wrote several interesting essays on the fur trade to which he appended some tentative speculations about the need for efficient lines of communication north of the 49th parallel if Canada was to thrive economically and culturally. Innis’ untimely death in 1953 has resulted in generations of unsupervised academic intellectual embroidery, blather, self-serving enthusiasms and other genial miscommunication. Innis himself is still a regular invitee to Liberal Party culture wanks, where he is able to interact without difficulty despite his condition.
