This book is a bold clarion call to arms for canada to examine and renew itself?before it is too late.Number 1, The Globe and Mail nonfiction bestseller listSeven months, The Globe and Mail bestseller listMore than 75,000 copies sold!“William Gairdner’s book will have a special impact on American readers who sometimes get the impression that political economic treatises that blow down this way from up there are all written by godchildren of John Kenneth Galbraith. Mr. Gairdner sees bright and clear what Canada so greatly needs, and his mobilizing passion wonderfully animates an analytical precision that should be the reason for a national?binational?celebration.“? ?William F. Buckley“Clear, concise and assertive?a tour d’horizon of the Canadian socio-economic landscape?medicare, bilingualism, amateur sport, multiculturism, family life and even ‘pulpit socialism’?”?The Globe and Mail“A powerful book and searching application of new ideas about politics and economics to the continuing Canadian conundrum.“ ?Peter Brimelow“The Trouble with Canada is a caring, comprehensive assault on our social-welfare mentality that will jolt Canadians?and help to bring the country to its senses. I recommend its author and recommend the book to all who are concerned about our future.“ ?Michael Walker
