The U.S. & Canada (beyond Stephen Harper)

Will Canada end up a nation without publishers?

One agent asked me where I wanted to be in twenty years’ time. When I faltered in my reply, the agent said: “Of course, twenty years from now there won’t be any Canadian publishers. But there will be Canadians who write for American publishers. And I shall be representing them.”

If the agent is right, we are currently living through the dismantlement of Canadian publishing.
