Klaus Schwab, founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum. The World Economic Forum’s 2022 report, in identifying the top five categories of global risks, clearly highlights that we live in risky times. But it is also interesting to note several risks that were not included among the report’s top five, and wonder why: inflation; Russian adventurism in Eastern Europe and the Ukraine; China’s aggressive foreign policies; and supply chain disruptions, write Kevin Lynch and Paul Deegan.

Environment Minister Steven Guilbeault, pictured Feb. 3, 2020, on the Hill. Glasgow achieved about as much as could have been realistically expected. It turned public attention around the world to the issue of climate change, its gravity, and its urgency. The 'why' is clear, the focus in every country has to be on the 'how' of building a greener, cleaner, and prosperous future, write Kevin Lynch and Paul Deegan.

Members of the House Access to Information, Privacy, and Ethics Committee in the Wellington Building, pictured on July 23, 2020. Parliamentary committees are the natural venue and yet, today, too many CEOs would rather pass on an invitation from a parliamentary committee. Who could blame them?

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, pictured April 16, 2021, on the Hill. The questions are how do self-inflicted mistakes happen and why are there still such mixed messages and lack of clarity over a year into the pandemic? The answer is in the message and the messenger. Today, communication in most governments is highly centralized, more controlled from the top than ever before, write Kevin Lynch and Paul Deegan. The Hill Times photograph by Andrew Meade
