Rogue in Power: Why Stephen Harper is Remaking Canada by Stealth

Lorimer | March 7, 2011 | 160 pages

Canada is being transformed from a country with a long, proud history to a place that many of us hardly recognize. What is happening? According to political scientist Christian Nadeau, the changes stem from a platform for radical change that is being successfully carried out by the Harper government. Realizing that they already control public opinion on the economy, the Tories have set their sights on something new? Canada''s soft, liberal values. Nadeau looks at how Harper and the Tories are systematically dismantling political, social, and cultural institutions?and with them traditions and values?that many of us hold dear. Nadeau discusses recent issues that have defined Harper''s government: proroguing Parliament, appointing Tory-backed judges, promoting a law and order agenda, ending the gun registry, and preventing the collection of impartial data through the Census. Rogue in Power is a compelling exploration of how Canada is being refashioned in broad daylight while the public neither seems to notice or care.

CHRISTIAN NADEAU is a professor at Université de Montréal where he teaches philosophy and political ethics. He has published many articles and books, including Guerres justes et injustes and Justice et démocratie. Trained as a lawyer, SUSAN JOANIS has been involved in legal and policy work in the area of human rights and equality rights for over twenty-five years. She is also a writer, editor and translator.
