Hugh Segal is a very well-known and well-liked former politician who has served in myriad roles in provincial, federal, and international politics, with formal positions as chief of staff to a Prime Minister Brian Mulroney and principal secretary to the premier of Ontario. Although Conservative, he was appointed to the Canadian Senate by a Liberal prime minister.So, why would a life-long Conservative advocate for decades for something as lefty as a guaranteed basic income? He has consistently worked, both publicly and behind the scenes, to bring about economic policies that provide support for the most economically vulnerable. This book is a passionate and often emotional confession about his road to Damascus, beyond classic laissez faire conservative economics to a more profound reflection on the central importance of not looking away from those beneath the poverty line.This book will be news: basic income is a hot topic. Silicon Valley tech billionaires are championing it, countries are experimenting, Doug Ford just scraped a pilot project for Ontario (that Hugh Segal co-authored), books are being published (Evelyn Forget's Basic Income for Canadians, Ann Lowry's Give People Money, Chris Hugh's (co-founder of Facebook) Fair Shot, to name but a few). Hugh Segal has been at this a long time and his perspective, from inside and outside politics, has longevity in addition to being incredibly timely. Hugh Segal is well known and well liked. He has written a number of previous books, including No Surrender: Reflections of a Recovering Politician (1993); The Long Road Back: Building the New Conservative Party (2004); The Right Balance: Canada's Conservative Tradition (2010); and Two Freedoms: Canada's Global Agenda (2016).
