Rate this:
In 1993 the Liberals came to power on a traditional party platform of social spending and strong federalism.Yet under the pressures of office, they moved to slash spending and to cede power to the provinces.The Liberals led the fight against Quebec separatism, confident of an easy victory.Yet the separatists lost by a razor-thin margin in a shocking referendum that brought Canada to the brink of dissolution. Here is the inside story of the Jean Chretien government: the high drama, the low gossip, the secret deals and blunders, as men and women jockeyed for power while the nation faced momentous challenges--restoring its fiscal stability and preserving its very existence.Told by two of Canada's most respected journalists, Double Vision is a compelling inside account of a party in search of its soul...and a country in search of its future.
