Format: Hardcover
The discussion of cities and their lack of funding and what the implications are to Canada is largely unknown. Alan is able in 'easy read' provide a comprehensive review of this happened in the first place, the surrounding politics and even offer some doable solutions. This discussion, to date, has largely been academic or at the senior level of municipal administrations. TAX PAYERS across Canada need to understand and need to advocate change!

Format: Paperback
This is an exceptional fiction novel that displays leadership and community building. Capponi does an amazing job at illustrating the value of an individual regardless of their social status. The language used in the book paints a great picture of real-life experiences connecting you then with the characters involved. I couldn't put it down, very suspensful plot. Loved that it was set in my home, Toronto. The story is a remarkable example of power and authorities and how that can be challenged as well. :)
