About the Author

David Rayside is a professor emeritus of political science and sexual diversity studies at the University of Toronto. Jerald Sabin is a research associate with the Carleton Centre for Community Innovation at Carleton University. Paul E.J.Thomas is a SSHRC postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Political Science at Carleton University.


This is a solid monograph, based on an impressive array of sources ... It is also very readable, and mercifully free of jargon, making it accessible for undergraduates and interested lay readers outside academia. It is recommended to anybody seeking to understand the role of religion in the recent Canadian political landscape. It is also an important contribution to the ongoing debate over 'secularization' in Canadian society.
