Welcome to my web site.  All good things come to an end and when I retired in 2013 after more than thirty years as editor of the Canadian Parliamentary Review and shorter periods as a public servant, professor and consultant, I decided to create this web site for my post employment amusement and to house various articles, letters, book reviews and other material published over the years.  I even included many works that never saw the light of day.

From 2013-2015 I was Visiting Scholar with the Bell Chair in Canadian Parliamentary Democracy at Carleton University so I have posted some recent musings about parliamentary reform.

The site includes information relating to my involvement with the Canada-China Friendship Society..

Since 2016 I have been a Research Fellow with the Confucius Institute at Carleton and an Adjunt Professor at the Centre for Canadian Studies at Guangdong University of Foreign Studies in Guangzhou China.and Shaanxi Normal University in Xi’An.

I hope you will find something of interest in these pages.
