Overview

Some say the environment will be this century's health-care conundrum. Canadians are waking up from our Liberal hegemony mirage and finding out that we're not the progressive country they told us we were. And now, a country that stayed out of Iraq and embraced equal marriage has a neoconservative PM-and a Liberal emissions record that's worse than that of George W. Bush.

WHY?

  • Why does Trudeau represent the Liberal Party? Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves, but his Republican Party's no ally of African-Americans today.
  • Sovereignty is globalizing, and Andre Boisclair represents its new face.
  • Parliament rendered cold judgment on Liberals who chose their date. And braced for execution: the day the 2006 election began.
  • Not since Wayne Gretzky's rookie season have Liberals beaten a united Right.
  • Elizabeth May congratulated Liberals for refusing to follow California's lead on emissions standards.
  • The NDP's a lot like Lego and every now and then another block is added.

Read about these insights-and many more-in a book that sets its sights Dead Centre.
