author’s note:
The author would like to extend sincerest thanks to Hart House, andits Warden, Margaret Hancock, for issuing the invitation to him tothink more about Canada's place in the global future; to John Fraser,Master of Massey College, for hospitality during his stay in Canada;and to Patricia Grant and Christine Campbell and, especially, MikeMorgan and Peter MacLeod for making the whole experience such apleasant one, and for helping to confirm him in his dangerousassumption that Toronto might be one of the most enlightened citieson the planet.This book is dedicated to all those who hope to make good on thepromise of Canada.
