The Arrogant Autocrat: Stephen Harper’s Takeover of Canada.


Dear Friends,


I am very happy to be able to tell you that my new book about Stephen Harper is at the printer. Copies should be available through bookstores any day now. We have purposely kept the book to under 150 pages so we could keep costs down and get it out well in advance of the next federal election. The book will be a quality trade paperback retailing for $19.95.

Only a very few people have had a chance to read it yet but there has been much praise – “powerful,” “explosive”… Everyone who has seen the manuscript is very excited about the book. The one person who won’t be is Stephen Harper.

The title is – The Arrogant Autocrat: Stephen Harper’s Takeover of Canada and it is an excellent description of how Stephen Harper has been ruining our country.

If your bookstore doesn’t have copies, you will be able to order them through your bookstore or from Chapters.ca or Amazon.ca. If you have any difficulties whatsoever, give me a call at the number below.

Given that the election is just around the corner, this book is very, very timely and should have an impact on the results. The Arrogant Autocrat contains all kinds of information that you won’t find in other Stephen Harper books. There is a great deal of new material here and much of it is shocking. I hope you will tell all your friends and family about the book.


Best regards,

I (Sandra Finley) acknowledge a special debt of gratitude to Mel.

He was very active in the effort to stop the contracting-out of work at Statistics Canada to Lockheed Martin Corporation (American military). (2003 – 2006 and beyond)

When I was subsequently charged for failure to comply with the Census, Mel was there with emotional and moral support. Through the years I received occasional, brief but important words of encouragement from him.

“Arrogant Autocrat” will be another valuable contribution to the history of Canada. Bless you and thank-you Mel.

p.s.   On the  cover of Mel’s new book are found his words:

”I have spent much of my career  warning Canadians of the increasing threat that foreign corporate takeovers of our companies and resource sectors pose to our sovereignty. But in decades of sounding the alarm of takeovers, I never imagined that the greatest threat would come from the takeover of our country by one politician determined to remake our nation according to his own values and priotities.”
