"The foundations of the province of New Brusnwick and the city of Saint John in the 1780s are causes for celebration in our political culture. Yet, as David Bell reminds us in [this book, the process had an inglorious dimension. "For New Brunswick, this is an important book which helps us understand how we got to where we are now."-- (12/07/2013)
