Text of introduction by Joseph Planta:

I am Planta: On the Line. This is THECOMMENTARY.CA.
A stimulating, provocative, enlightening, and revolutionary book is out now from the noted economist and political commentator, Brian Lee Crowley. Fearful Symmetry: The Fall and Rise of Canada’s Founding Values has gotten a number of good notices and favourable recommendations. It looks at Canada, and how the 1960s ideals that brought about the ‘New Canada’ are quickly losing favour and will soon give way to the so-called ‘Old Canada’ and our traditional values of a ferocious work ethic, a commitment to the family as the most important social institution, and a suspicion of big government. For someone my age, these values seem foreign, as they’re not the ones I grew up with. Also we’ll discuss how Mr. Crowley views Canada as it is and how it will be, what with Quebec’s influence waning, and our workforce changing dramatically. It seems we’ll be working longer. Brian Lee Crowley is the founding president of the Atlantic Institute for Market Studies. This book is published by Key Porter. The website for more is www.brianleecrowley.com. It’s a fascinating, well-written book, one that challenges how one thinks about Canada. Please welcome to the Planta: On the Line program, Brian Lee Crowley; Good morning, Mr. Crowley.
