I read with interest your year-end issue (“Canada in 2005,” Cover, Dec. 30, 1996/ Jan. 6,1997). Your analysis of Canada and its people is accurate and insightful. As someone who worked for the federal government for 18 years and lived all his adult life in Ottawa, it is my impression that in the era of globalization, the Canadian economy, and its government, is increasingly coming under the influence of global market forces that the economists and politicians cannot even predict, let alone control.
