From: Canada after Harper
Finn describes Canada’s state under Harper and the country’s socioeconomic status. Nader describes how excessive corporate power and influence had transformed the United States into the most inequitable and socially backward industrialized country in the world. He expressed his concern that the “closer-integration-with-the-US” policies of our federal government were dragging Canada down the same calamitous slope.
ED FINN began his 70-year career in journalism in 1944 as a reporter for the Corner Brook daily The Western Star, followed by two years with the Montreal Gazette in the 1950s. While working as a communicator for several unions during the 1960s-1980s, he wrote a column on labour relations for the Toronto Star from 1968 to 1982. He retired in 2014 after serving 20 years as editor of the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives' monthly magazine, The Monitor
