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

Writer notice: Jean Lapierre (with)

A sly, insightful and beautifully unique e-book from one among Canada's most well liked political analysts, Chantal Hébert, and one among Quebec's most sensible political broadcasters, Jean Lapierre.

Only the main fearless of political newshounds might dare to open the outdated wounds of the 1995 Quebec referendum, a still-murky episode in Canadian heritage that keeps to defy our knowing. 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 category. Interviewing 17 key political leaders from the duelling referendum camps, Hébert and Lapierre commence with an easy premise: asking what have been those political leaders' plans if the vote had long gone the opposite direction. Even 2 a long time 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 subsequent election.
As one of many vital best ministers within the lifetime of our kingdom, Stephen Harper has reshaped Canada right into a extra conservative kingdom, a metamorphosis that his rivals tacitly admit isn't reversed. He has made executive smaller, justice harder, and provinces extra self reliant, whether or not they are looking to be or no longer. lower than its twenty second top minister, Canada indicates the realm a plainer, more durable face. those that compliment Harper aspect to the Conservatives' skillful financial administration, the striking new alternate agreements, the tax cuts and the balanced finances, the reformed immigration approach, 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 an important Canadian of our times--his suburban early life, the challenge that prompted Stephen Harper to hand over collage for 3 years, the forces that formed his tempestuous courting with Reform chief Preston Manning, how Laureen Harper impacts her husband, his devotion to his children--and his cats. Ibbitson explains how this shy, closed, introverted loner united a fractured conservative circulation, defeated a Liberal hegemony, and got down to reshape the kingdom. With unprecedented entry to resources, years of analysis and writing, and a intensity of perception that has made him some of the most revered voices in journalism, John Ibbitson offers an intimate, precise 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 flesh presser and the guy.

The United States government, overwhelmed by applications for information, which it could not supply, at once despatched a trustworthy man from the Department of Labor to the scene of the new strike. The Canadian government was better supplied.

August 15, 1897. HE streets of leisurely Victoria are thronged with strange men, and there is an earnest look on their faces and firmness in their step. When the sealers return each autumn there is another crowd, but not like this. Victoria has never seen this crowd before. They are the kind of men who are the pioneers in every new country ; men from every station of life, but all of one mind, actuated by one purpose. They are buying horses, and watching men who in front of stores explain the "diamond hitch"; they are buying thick, warm woollens; belts that go around the waist, with flaps that button down over little compartments ; little bags of buckskin, with gathering-strings at the top ; heavy, iron-shod shoes, made in the likeness of nothing in the heavens above or the earth beneath, but strong, durable, and suited for the purpose in view; and moccasins of moose-hide, with sockt as thick as a man's hand and that reach to the knee.

Officer," said he, " I have a flask of whiskey with me, and me and my partner—well, we have a quart flask between, us. We don't drink ; we are taking it strictly for medicinal purposes. " " In such case," replied Mr. Smith, " I may say that it is not the intention of the law to examine a man's flask. C 33 THE KLONDIKE STAMPEDE The purpose of the law is to prevent the sale of whiskey to the Indians, and it is very strictly enforced; but, of course, we do not look into people's flasks. I only caution you.
