Description

Shedding a bright light on a dark side of Canadian politics, Losing Control critically examines Canada’s social conservative movement and discovers a reactionary, anti-reform insurgency of evangelical Protestants and Roman Catholics. Tom Warner chronicles the religious right’s advocacy on a range of moral issues–from abortion and the regulation of consensual sex to same-sex marriage and moral instruction in the public schools. He finds a movement desperate not to lose control of the state’s moral agenda in an age of Charter rights.

This timely and important book raises truly alarming questions about the close relationship between a resilient, never-say-die social conservative constituency and the political direction of the federal Conservative Party.
