Canada: Reclaiming the Middle Ground
Donald G. Lenihan, Gordon Robertson, and Roger Tassé (eds.)
1994 | 161 pages
The 1990 death of the Meech Lake Accord exposed deep differences in the way Canadians see their country; the 1995 Quebec referendum on sovereignty nearly tore it apart. The sovereignist and federalist camps are polarized. This book explores the middle ground; the authors call on Canadians to reclaim it. At a time when many have vacated the middle, this reasoned appeal for flexibility and a spirit of accommodation merits a wide readership.
