Blue-Green Province: The Environment and the Political Economy of Ontario

In Blue-Green Province, Mark Winfield takes a long-overdue look at the crucial relationship between Ontario's environmental policy and its politics and economy. Covering the period from the Progressive Conservative dynasty that dominated Ontario politics from the mid-1940s to the mid-1980s, through the subsequent Peterson, Rae, Harris, Eves, and McGuinty governments, Winfield offers a trenchant analysis of the effects of these administrations' dramatically different ideologies on Ontario's environment and politics. Timely and original, Blue-Green Province is the first comprehensive study of environmental policy in Ontario. It will be welcomed by anyone with an interest in Ontario's environmental and economic future.
