We will be joined by Dr. Giuliana Casimirri, Ph.D., an urban forest enthusiast, who will share her insights on the diverse benefits of urban patches.

Meet in the parking lot of Bethel Gospel Tabernacle at 1355 Upper Wellington St, Hamilton, ON. All welcome.

Tragedy in the Commons: Former Members of Parliment Speak Out About Canada's Failing Democracy

  • Date: Tuesday, May 06, 2014
  • Time: 6:30pm
  • Location: McMaster University Medical Centre, Room 1A4
  • Address: 1200 Main Street West, Hamilton (Google Maps)
  • Contact: Kerry
  • Email: events@princebooks.net
  • Phone: (905) 528-4508

In "Tragedy in the Commons", Alison Loat and Michael MacMillan, founders of the non-partisan think tank Samara, draw on an astonishing eighty exit interviews with former MPs from across the political spectrum to unearth surprising observations about the practice of politics in Canada.

Though Canada is at the top of international rankings of democracies, Canadians themselves increasingly don’t see politics as a way to solve society’s problems. Small wonder. In the news, they see grandstanding in the House of Commons and MPs pursuing agendas that don’t always make sense to the people who elected them.

But elected officials make critical choices about how this wildly diverse country functions today and how it will thrive in the future. They direct billions of dollars in public funding and craft the laws that have allowed Canada to lead the way internationally. Even with so much at stake, citizens—voters—are turning away. How did one of the world’s most functional democracies go so very wrong?

Join us for an engaging discussion and book signing with authors, Alison Loat and Michael MacMillan.

Sponsored by: Bryan Prince Bookseller and OPIRG McMaster. Free, everyone welcome.
