Canada is a wonderful country, and we’re incredibly lucky. Yet much of our good fortune hasn’t happened by accident. Over the course of our history, people – of all political stripes – have made some good decisions. But Canada can be, and can do, so much more.
I’ve spent a lifetime interested in the policy issues affecting our country, as well as the world around us. But how do policies that make ours a better society get implemented, and others do not? A just society requires decision-makers with understanding and compassion — soft hearts. But to get there, we need economically sound, evidence-based policies — we also need hard heads. (Thank you to Alan Blinder, author of “Hard Heads, Soft Hearts”.) Join me in encouraging policies — and politicians to make the right decisions — for an even better Canada.
