Description

In 1999, researcher Paul Kemp set out to examine the controversial issue of Canada's 'brain drain', an investigation that took him across Canada and into the United States. Why were so many educated young Canadians forsaking their home country and opting for careers south of the border? Was the promise of greater salaries and opportunities pulling them to the U.S.? Or was Canada -- with its higher taxes and risk-averse business culture -- simply pushing them away? The transcripts and insights contained in Goodbye Canada? are the end result of Kemp's research, exploring the inherent strengths and weaknesses of Canada's political and economic cultures from different perspectives. The conclusions he draws should serve as a wake-up call for all Canadians -- especially those who deny Canada is facing any sort of national economic threat. The number of highly educated and skilled young people who leave Canada each year has risen at an alarming rate over the past decade. Goodbye Canada? demonstrates that Canada must act quickly to reverse the trend.
