Barbarians in the Garden City: The BC NDP in Power

by Mark Milke

Sandhill Publishing | January 1, 2000 | Trade Paperback

Barbarians in the Garden City: The BC NDP in Power is rated 1 out of 5 by 1.
With an election looming, but as yet unnanounced, Mark Milke's book offers keen insight into modern BC politics. Fast ferries, the fudge-it budget, Glen Clark, higher taxes, declining incomes, the Nisga'a treaty, big government and the Nanaimo bingo scandal - the NDP's disasterous decade in power -are all examined here. Milke details the scandals, the ideological attacks, and the abuse of power that became all too familiar to British Columbians since 1991. He also outlines his vision for the future and argues that reforms to BC's government must take place regardless of who is in power. The choice for British Columbians is between Sweden and Switzerland and Milke argues BC's greatest days lay ahead - if we choose wisely.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Total crap This book is a complete waste of time. The writer is in love with gordon campbell, a convicted drunk driver. The goverment of BC today is far worst then any NDP goverment BC has ever had.

Editorial Reviews

"...we're unlikely to be treated to such a comprehensive, solidly researched study as Mark Milke's, certainly not written with as much style and wit. A must for the thoughtful, and a stimulus for the forgetful." - Trevor Lautens, columnist, Vancouver Sun.
