Maximum Canada: Why 35 Million Canadians Are Not Enough

Maximum Canada: Why 35 Million Canadians Are Not Enoughby Doug Saunders

Maximum Canada is an homage to our country, a summary of the good and bad from our past, and concrete suggestions on what will allow us as a nation to reach - or rather, maximize - our fullest potential. In a year when debates about the movement of peoples remain contentious throughout the world, Doug Saunders makes objective and powerful arguments for the need to increase Canada's population. Saunders recognizes the challenges associated with a massive push to triple our population, but his optimism never strays to the quixotic. Thoroughly researched and compelling to read, Maximum Canada invites us to imagine a larger, even more inclusive Canada.
