Rate this:

Who's to blame for the decline of Canada's once-renowned social programs? This book argues that it's not the politicians, not big business (glorifying the free market), but Canadians in general. It provides compelling evidence of our loss of compassion during the last quarter of the twentieth century and our new demands for a harsher approach toward less fortunate Canadians, a harshness reminiscent of the century's early years. In the interim, we supported progressive social policies that set us apart in North America. Today we disown them and have become less attractive Canadians in the process.
