Everybody thinks that it’s the system that’s broken in politics; but what if it’s not the system that’s broken but rather our understanding of it? The Unbroken Machine seeks to explore our lack of civic literacy and show how our system of democracy should work.
Dale Smith’s new book, The Unbroken Machine: Canada’s Democracy in Action, unpacks the issues connected to civic engagement.
Smith, who graduated from our Master of Journalism program in 2010, is a freelance journalist in the Canadian Parliamentary Press Gallery. He has been writing about politics full-time since the 2008 federal election.
The public is invited to the March 7 launch of his new book at Le Moulin de Provence, 300 Metcalfe Street, at 7pm. Light refreshments will be served.
