For Canadian health-care companies to succeed, the provinces must centralize their procurement to favour Canadian health-care companies with a 'Buy Canadian' policy while the federal government provides extensive financing to help these companies to flourish. Also, Canada should encourage public-private partnerships in health-care innovation and business, writes Daniel Tsai.

Senator Mike Duffy, 74, pictured in 2014 at his trial in Ottawa, will be retiring from the Senate in May when he turns 75. Sen. Duffy was charged in 2014 by the RCMP with 31 offences over allegedly improperly claiming primary residence outside of Ottawa for living expenses, but he was acquitted of all charges in 2016. He filed a civil lawsuit against the Senate and the RCMP in 2017, which the Ontario Superior Court dismissed in 2018. He filed an unsuccessful appeal to the Ontario Court of Appeal in 2019 and in October 2020, he filed an appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada. The Hill Times file photograph by Jake Wright

Intergovernmental Affairs Minister Dominic LeBlanc, pictured Oct. 27, 2020, on the Hill, recently suggested the Canadian government could take an ownership stake to bail out our airlines. But Daniel Tsai argues that the Canadian government should explore other options instead, including offering low interest loans to airlines, guaranteed by the airlines' assets, which are lower risk.

As he unveiled the Senate’s new 'independent' expense oversight plan, Sen. David Wells claimed, 'the Canadian Senate will be a world leader with this structure in place.' In fact, for a decade the British Parliament has had a completely independent and transparent expense oversight regime, far superior to what the Canadian Senate has adopted, writes Daniel Tsai.
