Adams doesn't think so and he has a lot of data to back up his argument While some believe that Canada is becoming closer to the US culturally and because of our shared geography values interests and economic ties Adams believes that Canada is straying away from the US and is instead developing in its' role as a leader in the midst of current global political reordering Adams argues that It can't happen here because Canadians espouse progressive values and because Canada is an open and tolerant nation While I am no

KindleMr Adams is a pollster This book demonstrates both the strengths and weaknesses of his chosen profession There is a lot of data provided here but I think it lacks a certain depth of analysisHaving said that there is something there I was particularly interested in his comments on patriarchal inclinations

KindleThe rhetorical uestion posed in the title has pretty much been answered in the two years since the book was published The election of Doug Ford who's not mentioned and Jason Kenney who is briefly along with the rejection of Justin Trudeau and his 'sunny ways' show Canada's just as susceptible to right wing populism as anywhere else It's not surprising the book has dated rapidly it's basically a collection of polls the author is a founder of the Environics polling company with accompanying analysis But to be fair Adam's has used the polls and analyses to usefully chart the rise of authoritarianism and intolerance globallyWhile noting that the backlash against globalization and rapid social change resonate with some Canadians he seems to argue that our inherent 'niceness' will save us He contrasts the growing intoleran

KindleThis is not a review but is based on an interview I had with the author It was originally published in the Georgia Straight newspaperOn November 9 2016 Michael Adams went to bed before a winner was declared in the US election for president At 10 pm the cable news networks were reporting the count was still too close to call But the Democrats' candidate Hillary Clinton was widely expected to win Her opponent was a reality television star with no experience in government and a public record of racism and crude misogyny So Adams the founder of the polling firm Environics Research Group Ltd called it a night and headed to bedWhen he awoke the next morning just before 7 am Donald Trump was president elect of the United States of America“And at 9 am I sat down at my computer and I began banging out a proposal for a book” Adams told the Straight “We were all wondering could it happen here?”A year later the book is out and that’s its title Could It Happen Here?

    PDF Could It Happen Here? PDF Í Could It PDF \ ¹ pamyatnik.pro could mobile, happen book, here? epub, Could It ebok, Could It Happen Here? KindleMichael Adams’ book Could It Happen Here? focuses on the results of public opinion research and a variety of social and economic metrics in the attempt to determine whether a populist movement of the kind that swept Donald Trump into power could take root in Canada Ironically I started reading it during the Ontario election and found that I had to take a break as despite all of Adams’ citations of public opinion suggesting that Canadians are supportive of immigration government intervention social safety nets gender euality lower levels of income ineuity and all sorts of other nice sounding things the popularists under Doug Ford smirked and dog whistled their way to an electoral victory So even before I’d read to the end and knew Adams’ final assessment I had an answer to his uestion Yes it can and it did Writing in 2017 Adams was hopeful “Could Canadians suddenly find themselves seized by the rage fueled politics of e

KindleAs an American perusing the stacks at Shelf Life Books in Calgary I couldn't help but pick up Michael Adams' Could It Happen Here? Canada in the Age of Trump and Brexit Maybe it was the red Trump style hat that triggered my Pavlovian response The Canadians are right to be a little nervous Their mother country has launched headlong and ill advisedly into an effort to abandon their European cocoon – and with it the common market and the freedom of movement the EU affords Their southern neighbors have elected a reality TV show hack as the defacto leader of the free world His ascent was facilitated largely by conservative Christian voters who readily overlooked his affairs with porn stars his divorces his unapologetic history of sexual assault his vulgarity and his lack of both business acumen and relevant political experience So again Canada has a right to
