What the Bleep is Going on Here?

What the Bleep is Going on Here?

By Rafe Mair
$24.95



Lawyer, politician, radio broadcaster--and crusader! That's Rafe Mair. Even at 75 he is still fighting to save the planet, this country, this province, the Pacific salmon, our public health care and our electoral system. He castigates lawyers for cashing in on the compensation to aboriginals abused in the residential schools, slaps the wrists of stockbrokers who are creaming their profits even as their clients go broke and he weighs in on football team owners who expect taxpayers to pay for their playpens. He has the temerity to propose knocking down a few more trees in Stanley Park so that people can actually walk between them, and establishing new rules that prevent fights in hockey games. When Mair looks out over the horizon, he even has advice for George W. Bush and Vladimir Putin. To top it off, he invites his readers to be "happy in agreement with him and angry as hell in disagreement." There are sparks flying from the pages of this book.
