Oh, Canada: Harper's systematic attack on democracy and media | rabble.ca

This is a review of the book " Kill the Messengers: Stephen Harper's Assault on Your Right to Know." I would pick it up but I think it would just make my blood boil, and my doctor is alarmed already ;^)

We know all this. But the genius in this tome is how carefully the author catalogues and analyzes the ways in which Harper has systematically attacked Canada’s democratic institutions and the media to bring about this drastic transformation. From avoiding the parliamentary press corps, to doing away with facts and science, to reshaping the country’s history and perceptions of itself, Bourrie chronicles just how Harper has been able to do the unimaginable — and get away with it.
