Two decades ago The Trouble with Canada sparked a conservative renewal and inspired a generation.

Now, in this completely revised update, William D. Gairdner rejoins the battle, showing that Canada suffered a disturbing regime change in the last quarter of the twentieth century and is now caught between two irreconcilable styles of government: top-down collectivism and bottom-up individualism.

The result is a regime besotted with high taxation and big government, a welfare culture that rewards laziness, and a hug-a-thug mentality that betrays justice.

In The Trouble with Canada ... Still! Gairdner puts familiar topics under a searing new light, and recent issues, such as immigration, diversity, and corruption of the law are confronted head on, yielding many startling—and sure to be controversial—conclusions. This book is a bold clarion call to arms for Canada to examine and renew itself before it is too late.

Reviews

“... a provocative and stimulating work of advocacy, as well as a rigorous factual summary of the consequences of Canada’s profound move to the left of the past half century ... no one concerned with Canadian public policy should be without this unique, now almost institutional, work. Even those who disagree with aspects of it will find its assemblage of little-publicized facts and array of options and prospects indispensable to the national political debate under way.”
—Conrad Black

“...revisits the statist, politically correct, over-regulated albatross that has being weighing on Canada’s spirit. Throw it off! Gairdner shows you how ... an eloquent plea for liberty and independence by a keen-eyed critic who combines singing prose with a gimlet eye. Read this book! You’ll want to require every politician in Ottawa to pass a test on it before assuming office.”
—Roger Kimball, editor, The New Criterion (Foundation for Cultural Review, New York)

The Trouble with Canada opened my eyes to the decline of liberty in Canada. Now, Gairdner speaks to a new generation with a thoroughly updated version of that classic book. The struggle for freedom is never over. ”
—Tom Flanagan, professor of political science at the University of Calgary and former Conservative Party campaign manager

“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, JR. (commenting on the original edition)
