Canada in 2020
Twenty Leading Voices Imagine Canada's FutureBook - 2008
Twelve years from now, Canada could be a vastly different place from what it is today. Will the country still play a role in the United Nations? Will its citizens face tough environmental restrictions? How will we relate to our southern neighbours? Will Canada still be a democracy? In Canada in 2020: Twenty Leading Voices Imagine Canada's Future , twenty of Canada's leading commentators explore the ways in which this country is likely to change (or not) over the coming decades. Daniel Stoffman imagines Toronto as the Sao Paulo of the north, the result of a poorly managed immigration policy. Chantal Hébert paints a picture of Canada without Quebec. Andrew Cohen envisions a country in which Ottawa has become merely a symbol, and in which Canada Day has given way to People's Day. Jennifer Welsh puts forth a plan to remedy Canada's diminishing international stature. Originally published as an editorial series in La Presse and The Toronto Star , the essays are collected here, some in expanded and revised form, to offer an always compelling and often controversial portrait of Canada's future.
