Analysis of surveys done over many years by his company, Environics Research, shows that Canadian and American values are diverging rather than converging. Americans, with their emphasis on individual rights and competition (and the inherent scariness), are searching more and more for security via church, family (traditional, with father in authority), gated communities and so on. Canadians, with their emphasis on the importance of community and consensus, are now more tolerant and open to risk. The liberal, free society that was America has become more conservative, and order-loving Canada has become more flexible.
