This provocative guide chronicles the fallout after the demerger vote that realigned Quebec into five megacities and ignited fiery protests across Canada. Written by an experienced local journalist, this work sheds light on a tempestuous moment in Canadian history by analyzing the false premises and baseless fear-mongering that underlie the case for saving megacities, the unabashed war on democracy by mayors trying to hang on to their new empires, and how citizens fighting to reclaim their former towns are injecting new life into languishing democratic traditions.
