EVENT DATE: June 8, 2011
TOPIC: The Election – and Beyond
Paul Wells, senior columnist, Maclean’s Magazine, was the Canadian Club of Kingston’s speaker at a special end-of-season luncheon meeting.
As Senior Columnist for Maclean’s magazine, Paul Wells is one of Canada’s foremost political commentators. Fresh, funny and authoritative, he was hailed by Mordecai Richler as “a columnist for whom I have the highest regard” and by Robert Fulford as “a first-class Ottawa reporter.”
His first book, Right Side Up: The Fall of Paul Martin and the Rise of Stephen Harper’s New Conservatism was a national bestseller. He has written for Time magazine, the National Post, La Presse and the Literary Review of Canada. His blog, Inkless Wells, is required reading in Ottawa and wherever people spend too much time worrying about politics.
Paul provided the large audience with his perspective on the election process and its results, with a focus on what might happen over the next four years of Conservative majority government.
