The Toronto Star’s Susan Delacourt wanted to know if there would be a Canadian Tea Party movement, and she asked MLI Managing Director Brian Lee Crowley. His view? “We’ve had our Tea Party.” He underlined that the Chrétien government of the ’90s, with some prodding from Preston Manning’s Reform Party, made giant strides towards solving the problems that the US has failed to tackle successfully, such as reducing the public debt burden and putting governments on a sustainable course.
He also pointed out that Canadian governments have done a good job in whittling down spending as a % of GDP. It is the same message contained in MLI’s highly successful book, The Canadian Century, which Crowley co-authored.
