Diary and Downfall of a Utopian Socialist in the Heart of the Canadian Prairies
In this heavily sarcastic tale, idealistic social worker Gavin York sets foot in Winnipeg, Manitoba, a city of over 700,000 on the eastern edge of the Canadian prairies, to begin his career, convinced of his opportunity to change the world. After enduring many trials and tribulations in Canada's toilet bowl, Gavin eventually sours on his insufferable adopted home city and opens his eyes to the harsh reality of socialism and its disastrous long-term consequences once the unsustainable welfare state in Manitoba comes crashing down on him.
