This is a rambling and disjointed book. The first section argues that a Canadian prime minister is omnipotent compared to other democracies, the second that parties with ideas fail while those who just muddle in the middle succeed, the third that parliament aka the prime minister is becoming powerless because courts and international tribunals are taking charge. It ends with suggesting that we voters need to care more about civics and that alternative vote (2nd choice) elections and an elected senate would improve things, without explaining what they have to do with the problems noted in the first three sections. Not very useful.
