The book came in perfect condition and even quicker than I had expected (which was very surprising as it was order in the midst of the busy holiday season). I was very impressed!

Format: Hardcover
Mel Hurtig lays savagely into those who are permitting such disgraceful proportions of our poulation to continue to live in poverty and despair. He mercilessly strips through the received wisdom of (neo-)Liberal Party propaganda to reveal to what extent their turnarounds on the promises that got them elected have really and materially injured the Canadian populace. He shows us a face of poverty we don't usually get to see. This book left me furious. Please read it.

Hurtig shows us, through his careful research and statistics that Canadian politicians are the puppeteers who "pull the strings" to create (and maintain) poverty and inequality among the most marginalized individuals in Canadian society while fostering and maintaining the interests of "big business".
This book is a real 'eye opener' and ought to be read by all of us!
