By Mark Bonokoski

Canada has devolved over the years into “a childish country incapable of solving big problems,” according to Brian Lee Crowley, managing director of the Ottawa-based non-partisan think tank, the Macdonald-Laurier Institute (MLI).

Writing in the National Post, Crowley argues that “childishness in the form of wishful thinking has taken hold of Canada’s political establishment.”

“The post-war period in Canada has created unprecedented order and stability,” writes Crowley. “However, it has also led to a comforting but childish illusion that the world was simply made this way.”

”Canada’s puerile political status-quo means that wishful thinking has replaced critical thought.”
