Canada as a New Imperial Power?

Volume 40, Number 6: November/December 2006

Is Canada a new imperial power? The idea may sound strange for a nation of hockey-loving hosers, but there might just be something to it. Our new issue takes on the question by looking at Canada’s approach to foreign policy – partnerships in American military exploits and democracy promotion, a growing alliance with Israel, questionable practices by CIDA and Canadian-based mining companies in developing nations, and a growing focus on militarism rather than diplomacy. Also inside: a personal dimension by Mel Watkins, Elizabeth May’s Green Party, Cuba After Fidel, and Rupert Murdoch vs. MySpace anarchy.
