Living With Uncle examines the new realities of Canada's relations with the US in a world of a Conservative government in Ottawa, a trade agreement that often proves ineffective, and the post 9/11 American preoccupation with security and military dominance. In this book a new generation of analysts offers fresh insights into the challenges to Canada's independence, identity and democracy.
Contributors include Diana Gibson and Dave Thompson, former BC Hydro Board member Marjorie Cohen, human rights analyst Maureen Webb, University of Toronto law professor Kent Roach, Michael Byers of the University of British Columbia, Lloyd Axworthy, Maude Barlow, Ed Broadbent, Mel Hurtig, and Avi Lewis. Canadians concerned about the future of their country will find Living With Uncle a source of understanding, analysis, hope and inspiration.
