Canadian Sovereignty in a Global Economy: Can the National Dream Survive?


Canada's dream of a sovereign nation. How Canada was built. The need for sharing and our understanding of the need for community-based entrepreneurial action and the distribution of wealth and opportunities. Why and how Canadian Crown corporations were conceived. Our complex network of social programs. The belief that services should be equitable throughout the country: a fundamental Canadian value. The negative economic outlook in Canada and how it came about. The speaker's view of the Mulroney government in terms of our economy and our society. A detailed discussion of five areas in over which the speaker feels Canada is losing sovereign control: the manufacturing sector; foreign takeover; the gutting of our social programs; our resources; disputes. Some thoughts on alternatives: a different approach to becoming competitive. Finding again our shared values. Calling on Canada's fundamental principles for the role we might play in the new global order.
