Reinventing Canada


Reinventing Canada is a contribution to the national debate on Canada’s future. The book offers a comprehensive analysis of the political, cultural, and economic trends underlying our crisis of national unity and identity. The ideas are new, controversial, even startling, and Westell explains complex subjects in layman’s language. Among the topics are the rise of economic globalism; the decline of social democracy, which has been a defining aspect of Canada’s identity; the failure of Canadian federalism and parliamentary government; and the urgent need to reinvent the way we govern ourselves.
