Hugh Segal has been a part of Canadian politics, in one way or another for over 50 years. He has been a strategist, an author, a commentator, an academic and served as a senator. Highlights would include time as the Chief of Staff to the late Premier of Ontario, William Davis. He also had the same role at the federal level, working for former Prime Minister, Brian Mulroney. In this conversation, we focus on his passion for politics, and take a non-partisan look at politicians, ‘then and now’, and the importance of knowing our own history to help guide us to understanding where we are going.
