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

Writer word: Jean Lapierre (with)

A sly, insightful and fantastically unique ebook from considered one of Canada's most well-liked political analysts, Chantal Hébert, and one among Quebec's best political broadcasters, Jean Lapierre.

Only the main fearless of political newshounds may dare to open the outdated wounds of the 1995 Quebec referendum, a still-murky episode in Canadian heritage that keeps to defy our realizing. The referendum introduced one of many world's so much winning democracies to the threshold of the unknown, and but Quebecers' attitudes towards sovereignty proceed to baffle the country's political classification. 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 gone the wrong way. Even 2 many years later, their solutions could 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 following election.
As one of many vital major ministers within the lifetime of our country, Stephen Harper has reshaped Canada right into a extra conservative nation, a change that his competitors tacitly admit shouldn't be reversed. He has made executive smaller, justice more durable, and provinces extra self sustaining, whether or not they are looking to be or now not. lower than its twenty second top minister, Canada indicates the realm a plainer, more durable face. those that compliment Harper element to the Conservatives' skillful fiscal administration, the awesome new exchange agreements, the tax cuts and the balanced price range, 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 problem that prompted Stephen Harper to give up collage 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 flow, defeated a Liberal hegemony, and got down to reshape the state. With unprecedented entry to assets, years of study and writing, and a intensity of perception that has made him the most revered voices in journalism, John Ibbitson offers an intimate, certain portrait of a guy who has remained an enigma to supporters and enemies alike. Now that enigma is published, in a masterful exploration of Stephen Harper, the baby-kisser and the fellow.
