Summary: This revised edition of "The Canadian Embassy" reflects the avalanche of change that has overwhelmed the country's power elite. Of the 175 names listed when it was originally published in 1975, 12 names have been dropped and 144 new members added. A new platoon of movers and shakers have ascended giddy heights in the power pyramid. Conrad Black captured the Argus reins. Ken Thompson successfully took over the Hudson's Bay Company. Bob Blair won out over Bill Wilder in the fight to build the great north-south pipeline. The economic struggle for Canada's soul is between the old establishment and the new brash breed of entrepreneurs. The outcome will decide Canada's future.
