Gairdner has a strong opinion about Canada.

Born out of collectivism and good government, there's a strong libertarian streak in the actual citizens of the country and these two world views are at odds. But collectivism is dangerous.

He goes hard at immigration, our cultural mosaic and how the law and government is working. I think the main message is that the good of the many approach is expensive, misguided and causes us to not think for ourselves.

I think my main criticism of the book is how the message that we need to be questioning and participating in policy is undercut by the fact that it seems like that's okay as long as we reach the same conclusions as Gairdner.
