Tragedy in the Commons
Former Members of Parliament Speak Out About Canada's Failing DemocracyBook - 2014
In Tragedy in the Commons, Samara founders Alison Loat and Michael MacMillan provide an unprecedented look behind the curtain of Canadian politics. Based on their exit interviews with several dozen retired MPs, they share surprising observations about the practice of politics in Canada: the accidental arrival of many in political life; the mystery of what an MP is actually supposed to do in office; the role of the political party in an MP's life; and how complicated that role becomes whenever the media starts paying attention.
