Default Which of these book ideas intrigues Canadians the most?

A) In this fantasy book, the laws of physics are altered such that if one person drove to Winnipeg from Regina and another drove to Winnipeg from Toronto, the Winnipeg would not be the same Winnipeg for the Regina person as the Toronto person. So in this fantasy world, you can not travel from just any Point A and arrive at the same Point B. You have to actually know how to get to the right starting point or else you'll never reach the right destination.
(SYMBOLIC ON MANY LEVELS OF INTERPRETATION) That's the not the plot of the book, that's the concept the book is written into.

B) Rather than the Canadian Prairies being way slower paced than Toronto, Ontario? In this book, the setting is that time really ticks faster in the Canadian prairies and people just live shorter lifespans. And when millions of years old buffalo bones are buried in the ground, it's really not that long a time. And so like a Prairie family who moves to Toronto comes to explore a lightning fast society.

C) This concept is kind of funny. It is about what kills more people, nonverbal abuse or verbal abuse and this would be about a society where people bleed from verbal insults and then you get to see that some very seemingly peaceful towns are not so utopian on the inside.

These would all be geared towards Canadian themes of finding one's origin, lifestyle pace, seeking happiness, fleeing from pain inflicted by others, things like that.

So A B or C?

B for sure. The others seem too complicated and not interesting at all.
