Eugene Forsey chose to air his heartfelt opinions in the broadest of public forums, the letters to the editors page. His foremost concern was the survival and success of Canada as a unified nation, but the demise of the English language, litter, and the misguided aesthetics of government agencies in the placing of public statuary did not escape his at times acerbic pen. Selecting from some 800 letters written over 60 years, J.E. Hodgetts weaves together a full picture of this patriot, whose debates in the press ranged from the role of the governor general, the senate, the judiciary, and the rule of law to his last battle over the Meech Lake Accord. In true democratic fashion the Canadian academic and constitutional aficionado, in answering the question of why such a prominent public figure would attach himself to this particular genre, "The Sound of One Voice" broaches the greater meaning of the letter to the editor, a often neglected area in the literature of democratic politics.
