  1. Canada Is Now To Climate What Japan Is To Whaling
    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 2009
    Here I am, watching the astonishing spectacle of a beautiful, cultured nation turning itself into a corrupt petro-state. Canada is slipping down the development ladder, retreating from a complex, diverse economy towards dependence on a single primary resource, which happens to be the dirtiest commodity known to man. The price of this transition is the brutalisation of the country, and a government campaign against multilateralism as savage as any waged by George Bush. Until now I believed that the nation that has done most to sabotage a new climate change agreement was the United States. I was wrong. The real villain is Canada.

  8. Fair Vote Canada
    Media Profile in Sources

    Resource Type: Organization
    Representing over 55,000 Canadians, Fair Vote Canada is a grassroots, multi-partisan citizens' campaign for voting reform. We promote the introduction of an element of proportional representation into elections for all levels of government and throughout civil society.

    In a democracy, every voter's voice should be heard in Parliament. The share of votes the electorate cast for a party's candidates should match the share of seats a party is awarded, so majority governments will have a mandate from a true majority of voters. Those are defining principles of Proportional Representation, and those are the principles Fair Vote Canada endorses.
