About the Book

The way that Canadians communicate about politics is being impacted by astonishing advances in media technology. Political Communication in Canada investigates what new tactics, tools, and channels are being used by political institutions, the media, and citizens to disseminate information and what implications they have for democracy. Contributors examine concepts such as the permanent campaign, political advertising, political branding, and the personalization of politics in Canada. They also explore themes in traditional mass media, news websites, blogging, and social media. Together, they probe whether changes in the way that Canadians exchange information about politics is improving or harming democratic discourse.
