Where to buy it


This book sweeps aside the smokescreen of city politicians who talk about democracy and doing what the people want, and demonstrates exactly how developers and other real estate interests have taken control of city hall.
James Lorimer bases his argument on detailed information about Vancouver, Winnipeg and Toronto. But he also cites evidence that suggests that the book's analysis applies to every major city in the country.
First published in 1972, A Citizen's Guide to City Politics is a pioneering examination of Canadian urban development and city politics.
