Join us for the book launch and discussion of the Trudeau Formula, featuring author Martin Lukacs.
After a decade of Stephen Harper, the arrival of Justin Trudeau felt like a relief.
But as Canadians reckon with the gulf between the dazzling promise of Trudeau’s election and the grim reality of his government, journalist Martin Lukacs makes the case that “real change” was never part of the agenda.
Drawing on investigative research and first-hand reporting, he reveals that behind the latest wave of Trudeaumania was a slick status-quo political machine, backed by a cast of corporate elites and lobbyists who expected a pay-off from Liberal rule in Ottawa.
“A must-read that brilliantly maps the inner logic of the Trudeau years” - Naomi Klein,
"Lukacs is a journalist I depend on to inform me about what is really going on.” - David Suzuki
