Conservative Politics with Hugh Segal

Few understand conservatism in Canada as much as Hugh Segal. His public service includes serving as Chief of Staff to Ontario Premier Bill Davis and Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney. Mr. Segal is also an author, former senator, and current principal at Massey College.

This episode is the flip side to my earlier discussion with Bob Rae. Whereas the conversation with Mr. Rae examined politics from the progressive point of view, this episode with Mr. Segal takes a look at politics from the perspective of a thoughtful conservative.

I hope you’ll enjoy as much as I did his insightful analysis on some of today’s most pressing issues, like climate change and trade, but also his personal stories about leadership, including a few anecdotes about Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau.
