This book should be required reading for anyone wanting to see how our democracy has been eroded under the Harper government. Everything is being sold to us in some fashion, Mark Bourrie is selling his interpretation as well - we need to have many points of view. We cannot trust our elected officials or some segments of the media to provide accurate information - it's a difficult job sifting through the propaganda presented to us. Mark Bourrie adds to the discussion in positive manor with his excellent investigative journalism.
Right to Know" and find it to be gripping, revealing and most informative; a disturbing book.
transparent" harper government. Honestly terrifying in that this is happening in Canada of all places.
Mark Bourrie belongs to one of the groups for whom freedom of speech has pretty well disappeared let alone access to government documents and research facilities. So he has both an insider's view of how this affects how he makes his living and why you get a feeing of anger and frustration in this book. But I would say especially because of his excellent setting of today's campaign in the history of Canadian politics that his book is the best one I have read on the current Canadian election even though the subject matter in most of them has been the same.
