Kenny MacAskill (left), minister of justice in the Scottish government, and Graeme Murdoch, an Edinburgh-based force of nature who is driving Tartan Day celebrations here in Canada, strike a winning pose with a favourite book. MacAskill has written or co-authored at least three books, and has had much to say about the need for Scots at home to engage with the Diaspora around the world. Tartan Day happens April 6, and for days either side of that date, Maple-Leaf-tartan types will have no trouble finding things to do.
