Globe & Mail Op-ed by President David Mitchell


David Mitchell observes how pro-active policy-making within government has atrophied. Not since the 1980s have governments pursued ambitious policy initiatives, instead focusing on the safer drudgery of service delivery and public administration. But in coming years, governments will need to play at least a co-ordinating role in policy areas ranging from aging, energy and the environment, innovation, trade, and federal-provincial relations.
