Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"An important contribution to Canadian public policy, both timely and significant. Many of the chapters are stimulating and provide new perspectives on old issues." Alan F.J Artibise, College of Urban and Public Affairs, University of New Orleans "A significant and useful contribution to its field, especially since Canadian and global life at the start of the twenty-first century is now highly urbanized. It sets the context for the renewed urban agenda focus in Canada. An excellent book.." Patrick J. Smith, Political Science, Simon Fraser University
