Doug Saunders in conversation with Gloria Macarenko
Author and journalist Doug Saunders is a five-time winner of the National Newspaper Award and the international affairs columnist for The Globe and Mail. In Maximum Canada, he argues that Canada is underpopulated and that we need a population of 100 million if we’re to outgrow our colonial past and build a safer, greener, more prosperous future. Historically, our economic policies and social tendencies kept us poorly connected to the outside world, attracting few of the people and building few of the institutions needed to sustain us. Yet support for a ‘closed’ Canada remains influential. Saunders has a rare and bold vision for Canada’s future: tripling our population will mean avoiding global obscurity and reconciling regional divides— and this can be done without a large immigration increase.
