Management consultants are the problem, not the solution

Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
In the past 20 years, consultants have either advised or taken over senior positions in government, with calamitous results.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
The Bye bye provides a better assessment of the state of politics in Quebec and Canada than a whack of political panels. 
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
They were never just numbers or names; they were flesh and blood, with their own personalities, their own stories, their own achievements, their own friends and families.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
While not as radical as the anti-vaxxers, those who are hesitant once presented a danger only to their children; now, in COVID times, they are a threat to all of us.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
If Quebec applied Bill 101 to federal entities it would exclude Quebec anglophones from services and opportunities and would be a slippery slope to a national unity crisis.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
As I take my leave from a city that has been home off and on for almost 50 years, I look back with affection and ambivalence, rather than love or hate.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
I am not a threat to the French language, nor are my fellow Anglo citizens. And to make us feel unwelcome in the guise of promoting the French language is the worst kind of discrimination.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
And Quebec is not alone in this, as events in Thunder Bay, Ont., Winnipeg, Saskatoon, rural Nova Scotia and elsewhere have shown. Racism against First Nations peoples spans the country.

Bumper sticker slogans may be clever, but as the last four years have proven, they are no substitute for genuine policy.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
While I often despair of the United States for its isolationism, obsession with money, and its reality TV culture, there are so many good and decent people there.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
Given the turmoil of the past two decades, we are better off in a united Canada. But like much of history, it is the myths that endure, not the facts. 
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
Like everyone else, learning how to navigate and lead the university’s journalism program was ‘not part of [the] game plan’ for new director Allan Thompson.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
For any real change to occur, there have to be reasonable amendments that protect speculative discussions and open policy making, but do not permit cover-ups of embarrassing information.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
Looking back, as someone who was there and both reported and participated in Quebec politics for decades, it annoys me when journalists who were not there get it wrong about the period.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
It is hard to believe the lived experience of Canadians only 25 years ago has been wiped out like the erasing of a collective memory bank.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
Applying the constraints of Bill 101 to federal employees won’t change the status quo, and could prevent English-speaking Quebecers from working or being served in their mother tongue, a right they hold as Canadians. 
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
The adverse attention on prominent women like Payette will do nothing to encourage future female leaders to venture into public life. If so, we will all be the poorer for it.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
While the internet 'gives a voice to the voiceless,' we might all be better off if they stayed mute.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
I fear for the future of public discourse if the political agenda is set by the ignorant and the vandals, not the knowledgeable and the civilized. We can’t let democracy become another casualty of the internet. 
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
The absence of a Grey Cup game for the first time in a century should be worn by the government, and fans could be resentful if teams fold.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
I think some prominent Canadians might take a lesson from those so-called ‘average Canadians’ and recognize no one is better than anyone else.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
Although the census is not the 'wedge issue' it was under the Harper government, there is so much more we need to know about our country and ourselves.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
The COVID-19 pandemic has sunk all boats, but when the tide comes back, we are still going to be seized with the challenge of declining productivity in comparison to our international competitors. 
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
It is counterproductive to discriminate against anyone on the basis of racial, religious, or ethnic background, not only because it denies them opportunity, but because it denies Canada their talents.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
Although Phoenix has provided me with fodder for several columns, it has been like a nagging toothache for almost four years.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
The reductionist concepts touted by so-called ‘Marxist intellectuals’ may play well in social media or on TV, but have a limited connection to contemporary reality or the great philosophers.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
As someone who knows the rest of Canada well, the Quebec Liberal leader says she would look to be a true ‘collaborator’ with Ottawa, while protecting Quebec’s jurisdiction.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
It would be a welcome change for Canadians to discover their own country and celebrate the sacrifices made to deal with COVID-19.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
If recent events prove anything, it is the need to reverse the escalating use of force as well as the militarization of the police in the suppression of dissent.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
Racism can be blatant and obvious, or it can be subtle and insidious; any form is unacceptable. Each of us who believes in genuine social progress has to do everything we can to empower people of colour.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
As it moves aggressively into the South China Sea, prepares to quash democracy in Hong Kong, and cow Taiwan into irrelevance, the continuing occupation of Tibet is a reminder of the hollowness of China’s claims.
Opinion|By Andrew Caddell
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has been loath to criticize Beijing for its long list of offences because he knows the key to getting a Security Council seat next month depends on Chinese influence.
