Par Jeffrey Simpson. 2001
Simpson argues that with the Liberal Party's re-election to a third majority government, Canada is in danger of becoming a…de facto one-party state.

Par Linda McQuaig. 1998
McQuaig looks into the popular belief that the Canadian economy is beyond Canada's control, held at the mercy of globalization…and technology.

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. Richler recounts his time on the trail, from door knocking in Little Jamaica to being internet-shamed by experienced opponents. Lays bare what goes on behind the slogans, canvassing and talking points, told from the perspective of a political outsider. 2016.

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.
Par Richard Gwyn. 1985
Par Larry Zolf. 1984
Par Mike Blanchfield. 2017
Canada, under Harper, became a different sort of global citizen than before, one that occupied a new, unfamiliar position for…this country--the odd man out. Deviating from the cross-party consensus of how Canada should govern itself outside its borders, Harper's leadership marked a turn from multilateralism, typified in his refusal to "go along to get along" on the world stage. This stance characterized Canadian relations with the United Nations and Canadian responses to political and military strife throughout the world. In the wake of Justin Trudeau's promise to return Canada to its pre-Harper state, this book examines Canada's global relations under Harper and their impact on the situation the Liberals have inherited. 2017.
Par Susan Delacourt. 2013
The author takes readers into the world of Canada's top political marketers, from the 1950s to the present, explaining how…political parties slice and dice their platforms for different audiences and how they manage the media. She argues that the current system divides the country into "niche" markets, and abandons the hard political work of knitting together broad consensus or national vision. c2013.
Par Jack Layton. 2004
NDP leader Jack Layton believes that the Harper government has abandoned what Canadians hold dear: our environmental commitments to the…world and future generations, our role as purveyors of peace, our engagement on the global battle against poverty and AIDS, and the emphasis on investments in child care, housing, and education essential for our future. He provides a "blueprint for Canada" to get the country back on track. 2004.
Par Edward Keenan. 2013
Since 2010, Toronto’s headlines have been consumed by the controversies surrounding its mayor at City Hall. The author suggests that…these have obscured a bigger story: Toronto’s decade-long ascendance as a mature global city having an amorphous identity built on diversity and constant redefinition. 2013.
