Product description


“Alan Broadbent, entrepreneur and philanthropist, has made a brilliant discovery: The land of moose, mountains and Mounties also has cities. Big cities. Diverse cities. Creative cities. The engines of our knowledge economy. The places where three quarters of us choose to live and work. But guess what? Cities have the governance sovereignty of small children in a patriarchal family. It’s time, says Broadbent, that Canada woke up and stopped starving the geese that are laying the golden eggs. It is time to provide our great cities with the powers and fiscal resources to do their jobs properly. If we do not, the entire nation will suffer.” -- Michael Adams, author of Fire and Ice: The United States, Canada and the Myth of Converging Values --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
