A Tale of Two Countries
How the Great Demographic Imbalance Is Pulling Canada ApartBook - 2016
"With a broad scope deeply anchored in demographics, A Tale of Two Countries focuses on Saillant's powerful argument: that the "twin forces of economic and demographic gravity" spell trouble for eastern Canada, and for the country as a whole, if we don't act now. First we must face a harsh truth: "the contrast is stark between have and haveless provinces and it is about to get starker." The result? Two distinct Canadas: one poorer, older; the other younger, dynamic. While the former struggles to weather the demographic storm, the latter, while maintaining the status quo, will have "little appetite for bailing out the older Canada." Without a significant shift in perspective, Saillant argues, Canada will be a country torn apart"--Amazon.
