Gordon Gibson, New Look at Canadian Indian Policy, Fraser Institute, 2009.

[It is a matter of both interest and concern that the Fraser Institute has published a book that takes *A New Look at Canadian Indian Policy." The author is Gordon Gibson, now Senior Fellow in Canadian Studies at The Fraser Institute, who will also be remembered as a former leader of the BC Liberal Party and a right-of-center newspaper columnist. The Fraser Institute is a widely-quoted neo-conservative "think tank" with a special line of Adam Smith jewelry and paraphernalia. This is not to be taken lightly. -jlt]
