Despite the worries of many Canadians - our countrys regional and linguistic divisions, our frequent identity crises - Canada, it seems, has a lot of good things going for it.The federal election of 2004, however, revealed new cracks in an already flawed political system.

John Ibbitson argues that we have entered a new political era, that Canada has become a nation of solitudes - the West, the English Centre, the French Centre, the East - each of which has its own cultural and economic concerns, none of which are being sufficiently recognized by the major political parties. If we cling stubbornly to old methods of governance, he says, we risk losing all that the Confederation has achieved in its first 138 years.In this compelling, and ultimately hopeful book, John Ibbitson dismantles the old ways of thinking about Canadas immigration, free trade, social, and defence policies.

His ideas for the future of this country are daring - a devolution of power and dollars from the federal to the provincial level, a revamping of medicare, a refashioning of the electoral system. They amount to no less than a revolutionary plan for the creation and defence of a new national dream. From the Hardcover edition.
