From Bay Street to Parliament: For Bill Morneau, government finance is a work in progress

, Financial News

“What I’m really hopeful (for) is that we can focus on things that can make a real difference for the country,” Morneau told the Financial Post.

OTTAWA — For a first-time politician, never mind a rookie cabinet minister, Bill Morneau is learning under fire what it’s like not to call all the shots.

The transition from Bay Street wunderkind — he was head of Morneau Shepell, a Torontobased consulting company — to the federal government’s fiscal flag carrier has been swift and requires a steep learning curve.

It’s one that can lead to some uncomfortable decisions and consequences, but also rewards. The transition is still very much a work in progress, the 53-year-old admits.

    Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having
    a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely
    unique. P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
