Stories about how Canadian mythology is molding our economic future. The state of the Canadian psyche. The so-called free trade conspiracy: details and who believes it and why they believe it. How the speaker debunks the myth. The collision course between federal monetary and trade policy. Ottawa's inability to accept blame for mistakes. Other groups to blame. Canadian refusing to admit to or face problems with the change away from a resource-based economy. Canadians knowing only what they don't want; not what they want. Steps to recovery. The need for all groups and participants to take responsibility for an economic recovery.
