COVID-19 and Ethics in Canada: The Failure of Common Decency
COVID-19 and Ethics in Canada maps the trajectory of the first two years of the pandemic through the lens of applied ethics. Whereas the public discussion of the pandemic often centres on data, the essays and articles that make up the chapters of this book approach COVID-19 as an issue of morality and values.
A key argument running through the text is that Canada’s response to the pandemic has been a failure of ethical action. The impacts of this failure can be seen in the disintegration of social relations and the fragmentation of Canadian identity. This book offers an unflinching look at how Canada failed the test of common decency and where the country goes from here.
