Oh, Oh, Canada!

A Voice from the
Conservative Resistance

William D. Gairdner


FOR MORE THAN TWO DECADES, William D. Gairdner has been a major voice from the conservative resistance, primarily through his bestselling books The Trouble with Canada, The War Against the Family,and The Trouble with Democracy. Now, in this new book, his passionate, probing, and provocative intellect is hard at work, ranging over hot button issues of the day in the spheres of culture, the family, politics, and science. His quick-hit, entertaining, and rousing chapters include “Late Night Thoughts on Equality,” “Baby Seals and Babies,” “Mourning Marriage,” and “Six Types of Freedom.”

Here’s what the famous conservative thinker William F. Buckley Jr. said about Gairdner’s The Trouble with Canada: “His mobilizing passion wonderfully animates an analytical precision that should be the reason for a national – binational – celebration.”
