Great Canadian Notebook - by Dennis Rimmer
Where is the largest baseball bat in the country located? What is an ookpik? What’s the story on Hawkins Cheezies? If you think you know Canada, you might want to grab a copy of The Great Canadian Notebook. The book delves into a plethora of Canadianisms, some of which will no doubt be new to you. It is Dennis Rimmer’s first book. The longtime broadcaster and journalist is now retired and finally found the time to gather these pages. The book is a collection of stories from a ‘Canada Column’ he wrote for the Bellingham Herald over a 14-year period, along with a few extras. Dennis Rimmer spent much of his life in the broadcast industry as an award-winning commercial copywriter, announcer, sports reporter and newsreader.
