THE NATION’S BUSINESS

Giving capitalism an obscene reputation

As Canada’s national finances continue to deteriorate, it has become obvious that more and more of the social and economic infrastructure will soon have to be supported by the private sector. That’s why it’s doubly awkward that recent disclosures of Canadian executive salaries brand most of the men (and a few women) who command the country’s major business enterprises as selfish beasts, collecting obscenely swollen pay packets that have little connection with the success or failure of their efforts.

An Ottawa send-off for Charlie Lynch

A bunch of the boys were whooping it up in the press club saloon the other night, and nobody shot the piano player. They were there to roast and toast a freak of journalism, there not being very many of that breed left. Charlie Lynch is a freak of journalism because he has always believed you can have fun while going about a serious business.
