Stephen Harper's foreign policy documents the sordid story of the Canadian government's sabotage of international environmental efforts, a government totally committed to tar sands producers and a mining industry widely criticized for abuses. Furthermore, this sweeping critique details Harper's opposition to the "Arab Spring" democracy movement and his backing of repressive Middle East monarchies, as well as his support for a military coup in Honduras and indifference to suffering of Haitians following the earthquake that devastated their country. The book explores Canada's extensive military campaign in Libya, opposition to social transformation in Latin America and support for a right-wing Israeli government. With an eye to Canada's growing international isolation, The Ugly Canadian is a must read for those who would like to see Canada adopt a more just foreign policy.
Praise for the book...
Former Vice President of the Concordia Student Union, Yves Engler has been dubbed "one of the most important voices on the Canadian Left today" (Briarpatch), "in the mould of I.F. Stone" (Globe and Mail), "ever-insightful" (rabble.ca) and a "Leftist gadfly" (Ottawa Citizen). His six books have been praised by Noam Chomsky, Naomi Klein, William Blum, Rick Salutin and many others. "Yves became a foreign-policy expert by working as a night doorman in Montreal...He's in the mould of I. F. Stone, who wasted no time with politicians, who all have an agenda, but went instead straight to the public record."- Rick Salutin, Globe and Mail
