Manguel, Alberto

Often called “Ubiquito” in cultural circles, this Argentine-raised anthologist and critic, despite being a one-person multicultural group who speaks most of the nation’s official and unofficial languages, was one of the first commentators to smell a rat in cultural equity policies. Manguel’s good manners, appreciative reading habits, and the fact that he’s almost always to be found on a continent other than North America gives outsiders the impression that Canada is a civilized country.
