?This is 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, and 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. This is 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

“William Gairdner’s book will have a special impact on American readers who sometimes get the impression that political economic treatises that blow down this way from up there are all written by godchildren of John Kenneth Galbraith. Mr. 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
