Conservatism—Myth and Reality

Three topics: the budget, the economy, the country; spoken of in a personal way. A critical review of the current federal government. The attitudes behind the budget and why we have come in 1981 to that sort of position. Four disturbing elements of the budget. In summary: "a budget which is anti-creative, anti-invention, anti-innovation and anti-risk." The economy: why we have come to where we are and where do we go from here? The concern of government intervention. A discussion of what kind of market we have in Canada, and a review of the advantages of various systems. The country: the need for celebration. Giving credit. Making a plea to Quebec. What has to be done; by the people, by the government, and by political parties.
