Alex Marland talks about his book Brand Command: Canadian Politics and Democracy in the Age of Message Control.

'I believe that central control is deepening far more than people know or seem to care about. The creation of delivery units in the centre of the Liberal government are an excellent example of PMO control.' The Hill Times photograph by Jake Wright
