About Us

There’s an old joke about a Fabian society rallying cry: “What do we want? GRADUAL CHANGE. When do we want it? IN DUE COURSE…” This seems like an appropriate rallying cry for Canadian public affairs as well. We’re not out to set the world on fire. We’d just like to make things a bit better for everyone.
