This book should instead be titled 'What businesses a bunch of wealthy Canadians owned as of 2007'
To my thinking, this is not the same thing as Who Owns Canada Now since the author herself spends a great deal of time writing about the good and bad of allowing non Canadians to own Canadian resources, and devotes most of the book to telling the reader that most of the Canadians she writes about own vast amounts of foriegn based businesses.
A book that could properly support the title Who Owns Canada Now would instead have told me things like how much of Canada's land and businesses are owned by the crown, by provincial governments, and by private citizens. I have finished the book and I have learned none of this.
Also, the reader reads to fast espcially in the first of the book like he is in a race. Also, the author is female writing in the first person but the reader is male and that bothers me that he is always saying 'I' when it does not fit my mental image of the author.

Dry and lacked content
I struggled to finish this book, and didn't manage to. I found it extremely dry and the narrator hard to listen to. He lacked character in his reading and made it dull and tiresome. I would often find myself thinking of something else and realize I wasn't paying attention to the book. Every other book I have read or listened to I have finished work more knowledge than I started. I can honestly say I walked away from this one with nothing more than 1 fewer Audible credit. And unfortunately because it was an audio book, its not even useful as fire starter. Waste of a credit and I will be exchanging it.
