In this book, Michael Harris examines Prime Minister Stephen Harper's policies and principles, and the impact he is having on Canada's democracy. As usual, Mr. Harris's work reflects solid, well documented research, with very little ideology to colour the facts. He is an investigative reporter and sticks to that role.

As I read about many of Mr. Harper's policies and deficit-reduction measures, I felt that one may or may not agree with them. There is plenty there to make people angry, or to support. What, though, is truly scary...terrifying, actually, is what is happening to our democratic institutions such as officers of Parliament and Central Agencies. This is an important book for those of us who care about such things. ( )

Epigraph
Parliament can hardly be weakened any more than it already is.  Harper can't go much further without making the institution dysfunctional.  He is trying to control every aspect of House business.  In fact, it will have to be returned to its former state by someone if we are to have a democracy. -- Peter Miliken, July 7, 2012, interview with the author, Hurds Lake, Greater Madawaska, Ontario.
Dedication
For James Baxter
First words
On the night that Stephen Harper won the May 2, 2011 federal election, one of the most famous pollsters in Canada found himself in the company of very senior Conservatives at what should have been a victory party.
