Eddie Goldenberg (former senior political advisor)

Pen & Ink, 2006

“Everyone understands a horse race or a hockey game. The real story behind a major decision, however, is often more complex and more interesting, but is always harder to write.”

“I never found a problem in ‘speaking truth to power.’ On the contrary, ‘power,’ in government, as in the corporate world, is normally receptive to hearing the truth. The problem lies with those who are afraid to tell it.”

Eddie Goldenberg (senior political advisor to former Canadian PM Jean Chrétien)
