The attached commentary series was co-authored with Brian Lee Crowley.
It is a particular pleasure for me to again work with Dr. Crowley, one of the most thoughtful and influential independent public policy analysts in Canada. His bio can be found here. His new book, Fearful Symmetry: The Fall and Rise of Canada’s Founding Values, has been getting some cautious and some rave reviews from many of the country’s leading public affairs journalists and experts. Perhaps the most thorough review came from Neil Reynolds in the Globe and Mail September 9th and 11th. In the mid 1990’s, when Dr. Crowley was setting up the Atlantic Institute for Market Studies, he took the risk of commissioning me to review NB Power and to propose solutions for its commercial and rates challenges. At the time, Neil Reynolds was stacking up journalism awards for his paper, the Telegraph Journal, and made the paper central to the NB Power debate.
