About this title

Synopsis:

Beginning in the 1970s, Canada abandoned its historical foundations and fell under the spell of socialism. This is the best-selling classic that galvanized the generation now leading the continuing counter-attack. In plain language it explains how Canadians got into their present predicament, and how to get out. He deals with such topics as the great welfare ripoff; the waste in foreign aid giveaways; radical feminism's attack against the family; the mediocrity of the health-care system; and the politicization of the church. William D. Gairdner, Ph.D., is a former Olympic athlete and professor of English, and the bestselling author of seven books, including The War Against the Family and The Trouble with Democracy. Most recently he was the managing editor of Canada's Founding Debates.
