At the Crossroads

At the Crossroads

This last hour of a five-part series offers no answers to Canada's economic troubles. But it does lay out, for the viewer's discretion, a summary of the facts at hand and some possible alternatives to marriage with the United States. Some of the facts are discomfiting. For instance, at roughly thirty percent, we're already more foreign-owned than any other country in the world. The good news in this film is that a great, stubborn, national pride in our cultural and social differences is alive and well. It may just give us the confidence to look elsewhere besides the United States for economic alliances and models. Part five of the series Reckoning: The Political Economy of Canada
