The Morning After: The 1995 Quebec Referendum and the Day that Almost Was

Writer be aware: Jean Lapierre (with)

A sly, insightful and fantastically unique booklet from one in every of Canada's hottest political analysts, Chantal Hébert, and one among Quebec's most sensible political broadcasters, Jean Lapierre.

Only the main fearless of political newshounds could dare to open the previous wounds of the 1995 Quebec referendum, a still-murky episode in Canadian historical past that keeps to defy our knowing. The referendum introduced one of many world's such a lot winning democracies to the threshold of the unknown, and but Quebecers' attitudes towards sovereignty proceed to baffle the country's political type. Interviewing 17 key political leaders from the duelling referendum camps, Hébert and Lapierre start with an easy premise: asking what have been those political leaders' plans if the vote had long past the wrong way. Even 2 a long time later, their solutions may possibly surprise you. And in asking an unforeseen query, those veteran political observers cleverly reveal the fractures, tensions and fears that proceed to form Canada today.

Stephen Harper

The authoritative biography of Stephen Harper, to be released at the eve of the subsequent election.
As one of many very important top ministers within the lifetime of our country, Stephen Harper has reshaped Canada right into a extra conservative state, a metamorphosis that his competitors tacitly admit seriously isn't reversed. He has made govt smaller, justice more durable, and provinces extra autonomous, whether or not they are looking to be or no longer. less than its twenty second best minister, Canada indicates the area a plainer, more durable face. those that compliment Harper element to the Conservatives' skillful financial administration, the remarkable new exchange agreements, the tax cuts and the balanced funds, the reformed immigration procedure, the uncompromising defence of Israel and Ukraine, and the struggle opposed to terrorism. Critics--pointing to punitive punishments, muzzled scientists, attacks at the judiciary, and contempt for parliament--accuse the Harper executive of being autocratic, secretive and cruel.
But what in regards to the guy? during this definitive new biography, the Globe and Mail's John Ibbitson explores the lifetime of crucial Canadian of our times--his suburban adolescence, the difficulty that brought on Stephen Harper to surrender college for 3 years, the forces that formed his tempestuous courting with Reform chief Preston Manning, how Laureen Harper affects her husband, his devotion to his children--and his cats. Ibbitson explains how this shy, closed, introverted loner united a fractured conservative circulate, defeated a Liberal hegemony, and got down to reshape the kingdom. With unprecedented entry to resources, years of study and writing, and a intensity of perception that has made him the most revered voices in journalism, John Ibbitson provides an intimate, exact portrait of a guy who has remained an enigma to supporters and enemies alike. Now that enigma is printed, in a masterful exploration of Stephen Harper, the baby-kisser and the fellow.
