A review of the Canadian government: how it is elected, how it operates, how it is structured, how policies are set, how policy decisions are implemented or executed and by whom. What Colonel Rohmer thinks Canadians believe about how they are governed as opposed to how they are actually governed. A brief history of the development of Canada's government. The growth of what he terms "departmental pyramids" and their effect. Causes and effects of "runaway bureaurcracy" and how it happened. What Canadians might expect from its government. Suggestions for change and solutions.
