The Big Shift: A New Book By John Ibbitson Describes A Changing Nation
The book, which hit bookshelves late last month, was written to explore this massive change in demographics, power, and ideology that is radically altering the nation. "We realize that the Canada we thought we knew has gone away," the book reads. "Everything has changed, and everyone must change with it or step aside." In the video above, Ibbitson expands on these points and outlines how this power shift has altered the ideologies that steer the country, and why we all need to care about the new direction we are headed. As the The Globe and Mail's Ottawa Bureau Chief, Ibbitson has a wealth of experience reporting on politics both here and abroad. In his talks, he echoes the pressing issues of the moment and conveys his insight on the massive shifts taking place all around us—and what we need to know to effectively navigate these tumultuous times.
