BTC: ‘So much for Canadians being nice’


Christoper Flavelle, formerly a speechwriter for Stephane Dion, assesses the Canadian political scene for Slate.

“… beneath the calm exterior, Canada’s political system is in turmoil. Since 2004, a succession of unstable minority governments has led to a constant campaign frenzy, brutalizing Canada’s once-broad political consensus and producing a series of policies at odds with the country’s socially liberal, fiscally conservative identity. Canada is quietly becoming a political basket case, and this latest election may make things even worse.”
