Elizabeth May is Losing Confidence
Please join us to celebrate the launch of Elizabeth May's new book, Losing Confidence: Power, Politics and the Crisis in Canadian Democracy, at Parliament Pub (101 Sparks Street) on April 28th at 7:00 p.m.
Losing Confidence is a ringing manifesto for change from the leader of Canada’s Green Party.
Canadians are waking up from our long political slumber to realize that there will not be change unless we insist upon it. We have a presidential-style prime minister without the checks and balances of either the US or the Canadian systems. Attack ads run constantly, backbenchers and cabinet ministers alike are muzzled, committees are deadlocked, and civility has disappeared from the House of Commons. In Losing Confidence, Elizabeth May outlines these and other problems of our political system, and offers inspiring solutions to the dilemmas we face.
Elizabeth May is an environmentalist, writer, activist and lawyer. She is the author of seven books and the recipient of numerous awards, including the Order of Canada medal. Since her 2006 election as leader of the Green Party of Canada, she has led the party to an unprecedented level of support among Canadians.
