Since graduating from the University of Guelph in 1970, he’s made a living as a teacher, carpenter/contractor, artist and writer ---In the tradition of true Irish storytelling, McCann’s Shorts takes you by the hand and leads you on a nostalgic, often hilarious and sometimes tragic journey of one man through the second half of the 20th Century. Mother meets father in war-torn Belfast. Boys will be boys in small-town Ontario in the ’50s. Near misses and perfect endings. The foreshadowing—and numbing experience—of loss.
