Adams doesn't think so and he has a lot of data to back up his argument While some believe that Canada is becoming closer to the US culturally and because of our shared geography values interests and economic ties Adams believes that Canada is straying away from the US and is instead developing in its' role as a leader in the midst of current global political reordering Adams argues that It can't happen here because Canadians espouse progressive values and because Canada is an open and tolerant nation While I am not refuting this claim I do believe that his conclusion is too simplis

Canada in the Age of Trump and Brexit by Michael Adams is a book examining the rising trend of populist nationalism globally and applying it to Canada with the question is this possible in our country? Adams examines statistical data mostly he works for a statistical polling firm in Canada to answer the question ultimately concluding possibly but it seems unlikely He comes to this conclusion by comparing data and trends in Canada to corresponding countries most especially the United States and Europe Adams takes a look at a number of factors in Canada from income inequality to opinions on immigration levels patriarchal att

    Could It Happen Here? PDF × Could It Kindle - could pdf, happen book, here? book, Could It epub, Could It Happen Here? KindleThe rhetorical question posed in the title has pretty much been answered in the two years since the book was published The election of Doug Ford who's not mentioned and Jason Kenney who is briefly along with the rejection of Justin Trudeau and his 'sunny ways' show Canada's just as susceptible to right wing populism as anywhere else It's not surprising the book has dated rapidly it's basically a collection of polls the author is a founder of the Environics polling company with accompanying analysis But to be fair Adam's has used the polls and analyses to usefully chart the rise of authoritarianism and intolerance globallyWhile noting that the backlash against globalization and rapid social change resonate with some Canadians he seems to argue that our inherent 'niceness' will save us He contrasts the growing intolerance of immigrants and immigration in the US and Europe with Canada's continued acceptance thus

KindleRating 25In the world of politics today there is nothing that is discussed than the Presidency of Donald Trump Not a day goes by without a new scandal or a new inflammatory tweet or a new allegation The United States truly seems like it is run like a reality TV show So the question “could it happen here?” is a relevant one and will be as long as someone like Trump is in power Michael Adams’ book still has its place in the rapidly changing world of Trump because it does not feel like things have changed much since his election The 45th President still uses the same lan

Canada in the Age of Trump and Brexit Maybe it was the red Trump style hat that triggered my Pavlovian response The Canadians are right to be a little nervous Their mother country has launched headlong and ill advisedly into an effort to abandon their European cocoon – and with it the common market and the freedom of movement the EU affords Their southern neighbors have elected a reality TV show hack as the defacto leader of the free world His ascent was facilitated largely by conservative Christian voters who readily overlooked his affairs with porn stars his divorces his unapologetic history of sexual assault his vulgarity and his lack of both business acumen and rele
