Public Service

PM’s recent changes to top ranks of public service seen as renewal, wants ‘responsive, adaptive’ senior players

Queen’s University’s Kathy Brock says the government is ‘sending a signal out to people that they want a leadership that can move with these changes’ and that some longtime public servants ‘don't necessarily want to learn a whole new way of doing things.’

Some of the senior public servants to retire in recent month include, clockwise from the top left, Andrew Treusch, Ward Elcock, Matthew King, and Daphne Meredith. Queen's University's Kathy Brock said the new Liberal government wants a much more responsive, adaptive public service 'and they’re sending a signal out to people that they want a leadership that can move with these changes.'
