    1 thought on “Maximum Canada: Why 35 Million Canadians Are Not Enough

    1. Highly informative and thought-provoking. I liked the first two parts that are more of a historical look back at why Canada never became a population powerhouse like the United States - all the different economic, political and cultural factors that shaped two very different countries (at times, this was a little depressing much of our talent has left for the U.S in a historical trend, because of the lack of opportunities, markets, tax policies and more facing entrepreneurs in Canadacluding the [...]

    2. A very well-balanced and thoughtful read that doesn't feel like an overinflated magazine article or a flimsy read based on a clickbait premise. Saunders builds both a strong case for increasing immigration and population, first with a thorough and interesting historical review, and then with arguments both for and against his theory. It's highly readable and thoughtful without coming across as lecture or pedantry. If there's a flaw to his premise, it's that perhaps he undersells some of the shor [...]

    3. A cogent argument for significant population growth in Canada. The sections on health and long-term care are particularly poignant. The first half of the book is a history of Canada told through immigration policies and realities that will be a real eye-opener for anyone who, like me, took Canadian history in schools here in the 70s, 80s and 90s. For a heavy topic, it's a lively read.

    4. I think I'm sold on the idea of growing Canada to 100 million people by 2100, but I wonder what our country will look like by that time.

    5. This is a book that I wish to share with all Canadians I know, and enthuse about it until they read it. After that, I want to take steps to ensure that the future envisioned in the book comes to pass.Have you ever wondered why there is such a population difference between Canada and the United States? We take a fascinating look at the history of Canada, from the point of view of population, and the competing pulls of Britain and the United States. We review the history of Canada's First Nations, [...]

    6. Doug Saunders, in my view, is one of the few Canadians who are willing and capable of digging below our nation at its polishing level. He pushes aside those tired and self-glorifying notions of tolerance, diversity, stability, and good governance, confirming a reality of which I had long ago become convinced: Canada is very much a society of unfinished business and second-rate ambitions. In a nation as smug and contented as ours, a healthy dose of brutal self-honesty is very much needed.Why, for [...]

    7. I really wanted to like this book - not least because I agree with the fundamentals of his thesis - Canada could use more people - particularly immigrants - our major cities need more density and need to invest in public transit But this comes across first and foremost as a rather monomaniacal book. Saunders seems to think a higher population for Canada would naturally lead to a strong culture and a healthy economy with investment in public goods like public transit. But this ignores both the su [...]

    8. Another thorough work from Doug Saunders. I am a follower of his column in Globe and Mail and have read his bestseller "The Myth of the Muslim Tide". He is an avid researcher, and often provides quite a balanced perspective on demographic issues faced by today's societies. In this work, he effectively examines the long term future trends of population in Canada from an economic, social, political points of view. He argues that Canada needs to triple its population and reach 100 million by the en [...]

    9. It was difficult to finish this book, not for any fault of the book. But from my poor concentration. Finally I had decided to skip the history part and go to the author’s point of view. It gave a lot of information about Canada, its past and present and why it needs more people to realize its full potential. I recommend this wonderful for any newcomer that wants to be enlightened about what Canada is and what it aims to be.

    10. Doug has produced another well-researched and thoughtful discourse on an issue that exercises all Canadians' minds. As a relatively "new" immigrant to Canada, I got a short, but most useful historical perspective on Canadian politicians and their actions that have shaped this country and its peoples. Already a regular reader of Saunder's columns in the Globe and Mail, I am now a fan!

    11. Definitely the best book about the settling of Canada over the last 200 years. The policies and the desires to maintain the place as British, how this ended the results of it and a thought provoking proposal for the future.One of the best histories of Canada and political science books.
