The state of Ontario's indebtedness : warning signs to act( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays collected for this publication are designed to provide readers and particularly those in Ontario a better sense of where the province's debt stands today, the expectations for the future, and warnings about the likely costs of inaction. Part of the motivation for this publication was the lack of genuine response to the much-heralded report of the Commission on the Reform of Ontario's Public Services, or what became known as the Drummond Report, named after the chair of the commission, Donald Drummond. Simply put, the conclusions of the Drummond Report should have been a wake-up call for the Ontario Government regarding the immediate need for reform of the province's spending. Instead, the government has chosen to try to simply slow the rate of growth in spending over the next few years without any serious reform

Solutions to critical infrastructure problems : essays on protecting Canada's infrastructure( )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Canada's critical infrastructure - the physical and cybernetic elements on which we rely to operate most modern services and systems - may be facing excessively high levels of risk from both natural disasters and human error or malice. The dispersed nature of this infrastructure heightens our vulnerability. Dealing with this unique threat in advance requires that we understand its nature, and, once the real risks are identified, that we implement a cohesive, sustainable approach led by the federal government. Because the problem includes so many stakeholders, the federal government needs at the very least to develop a culture that increases the level of information shared among them and encourages communities of practice to mitigate potential disasters
