Today, these annual prizes were awarded to Patti-Kay Hamilton, for The Hunter and The Swan, (CBC Creative Nonfiction Prize) and Joanne Morency, for Tes lunettes sans ton regard (Prix du recit Radio-Canada).
Our Government is proud to support the book industry, an important part of our identity and economy. Book publishers in Canada generate over $2 billion in revenue every year and directly employ around 9,000 people. Through the $39.1-million Canada Book Fund, the Department of Canadian Heritage supports approximately 300 book publishers and industry organizations every year in more than 80 cities.
On behalf of Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the Government of Canada, I congratulate this year's finalists and winners on making such an important contribution to our rich culture and collective identity.
