Let the Eastern Bastards Freeze in the Dark: The West Versus the Rest Since Confederation Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The oil sands. Global warming. The National Energy Program. Though these seem like modern Canadian subjects, author Mary Janigan reveals them to be a legacy of longstanding regional rivalry. Something of a "Third Solitude" since entering Confederation, the West has long been overshadowed by Canada's other great national debate: but as the conflict over natural resources and their effect on climate change heats up, 150 years of antipathy are coming to a head. Janigan takes readers back to a pivotal moment in 1918, when Canada's western premiers descended on Ottawa determined to control their own future--and as Margaret MacMillan did in Paris 1919, she deftly illustrates how the results reverberate to this day.

About the Author

MARY JANIGAN is a journalist who has written extensively about Canadian public policy, including politics and economics, for the Toronto Star, Maclean's and the Globe and Mail. She has won the prestigious Hy Solomon award for policy analysis, and the National Newspaper Award for her clause-by-clause scrutiny of proposed Constitution changes. She has never lost her curiosity, and she has always wanted to understand how the blunders and triumphs of the past complicate the present. She lives in Toronto, but travels as much as she can, at the flicker of a passport.
