  1. Great commentary on Canadian politics. I like your well made observations about the decline of policy capacity at the federal level and diminishment of evidence in policy making. Looking forward to reading more.


  2. Just read your co-authored piece on Trump/Brexit for CapX. Very interesting, careful analysis. I’m quite surprised that, even after drilling as deeply as you do, you still find the same drivers in UK and USA – esp the town/country divide.
