Issue 24 Editorials and Rejoinders

Elections took place in both Canada and the United States in the fall of 2008, and Inroads 24 takes a close look at both elections. The Canadian section focuses primarily on the issue that should have been, but never quite was, the centrepiece of the campaign: the carbon tax. John Richards makes the economic case for the tax, while Marvin Shaffer explains why he believes a cap-and-trade system is preferable. Looking at the United States, Garth Stevenson, a longtime Canadian observer of things American, reflects affectionately but not uncritically on “the folks next door,” while Bob Chodos and Gregory Baum focus on the role of religion in the campaign.
