FCPP Publications :: Hon. Bob Rae, Premier of Ontario, 1990-95
Interesting food for thought -a political leader who has been there actually believes in substance -how refreshing . Q-JFCPP Publications :: Hon. Bob Rae, Premier of Ontario, 1990-95: "Bob Rae: I mean we�re right now in a period of deep partisanship. There is an absence of long-term thinking. I think one of the real problems in public policy is that so much of the formulations by the politicians is short-term. I think you've got to have a much longer term where you want policy to go and that�s one of the real problems. Things are too partisan at the moment and there�s too much of a fixation on scandal and not enough of a focus on what�s going to be good for the country in the long run. That�s a real problem we face right now."
