His most recent work, The Comeback (Le Grand Retour) is an examination of the remarkable resurgence to power of Indigenous peoples in Canada which has greatly influenced the national conversation on these issues. In A Fair Country (Mon pays métis) Saul argues that Canada is heavily influenced by Indigenous ideas.
