April 2011

"The new book by Hugh Segal, Conservative senator and longtime party operative, is among the most engaging of the books attempting to situate and explicate Canadian conservatism that have been published since Stephen Harper's ascension to the prime minister's office. While it is by no means a page-turner, The Right Balance is downright peppy compared to many of its predecessors...Segal...issues a carefully calibrated plea to the Conservative Party leadership to remember its roots, and maybe even restore them."

Hugh Segal is one of the great shining lights of Canada, a man unafraid to find the right balance politically, socially, morally—even whimsically. This is a wonderful screed from a fine mind, a mind honed on both principles and the art of the possible.”
