Par Noah Richler. 2016
During the 2015 federal election, approximately 1200 political campaigns were held across Canada. One of those campaigns belonged to author,…journalist and political neophyte Noah Richler. Recruited by the NDP to run in the bellweather riding of Toronto-St Paul's, he was handed $350 and told he would lose. But as veteran NDP activists and social-media-savvy newbies joined his campaign, Richler found himself increasingly insulated from the stark reality that his campaign was flailing, imagining instead that he was headed to Parliament Hill.

Par Jacob Homel, Frédéric Bastien. 2014
After the referendum in 1980, Pierre Trudeau turned his sights on repatriating the Constitution in an effort to make Canada…fully independent from Britain. What should have been a simple process snowballed into a complicated intrigue. Quebec, which thought its prerogatives would be threatened if the Constitution were repatriated, mounted a charm offensive in order to influence key British MPs. Not to be outdone, Canada’s native leaders, who felt betrayed by the British Crown, decided to enter the fray, determined to ensure that their cause would triumph. The English Labour Party had a view on the matter as well, which chiefly involved embarrassing Prime Minister Thatcher as thoroughly as possible. Describes how the maverick Trudeau and the uncompromising Thatcher entered into one of history’s most unlikely marriages of convenience in order to repatriate the Canadian Constitution. 2014. Uniform title: Bataille de Londres.
Par Marci McDonald. 2010
To most Canadians, the politics of the United States, where fundamentalist Christians wield tremendous power, seem too foreign to ever…happen here. But McDonald believes that the Canadian Christian right - infuriated by the legalization of same-sex marriage and the increasing secularization of society - has been steadily building organizations, alliances and contacts that have put them close to the levers of power. Shows how the religious right's influence on the Harper government has led to important but little-known changes in everything from foreign policy and the makeup of the courts to funding for scientific research and social welfare programs. c2010.
