Does Joe Clark have an idea about how to fix Canada? You better believe it!
As Joe Clark travels around the country on his book tour, he’s meeting with students, academics, NGOs, non-state actors, community groups, business groups and all sorts of other people who want to join his process: convening space to talk about where Canada is now, and where it could/should be.
And it’s clear that in an increasingly post-partisan world, Clark is the poster boy for being without a party, as the Reform Party merged, then destroyed his Progressive Conservative party. And with the increasingly hate-filled tone of partisan rhetoric in North America, being post-partisan has its benefits.
