I joke all the time that that should the official motto of our neighbor to the north, but it hit home just now having coffee with a very well-connected Canadian politico. We were discussing the convention, politics, etc and then I asked him how similar Canadian politics were to ours. He paused for a moment and said, “They’re pretty similar. Well, one thing that’s different is that we don’t have a huge consulting industry like you do here. In Canada the parties like to produce their ads and such in-house. So if you work at a consulting firm and want to work on the election you take a leave and volunteer for the campaign. And don’t get paid. When I see Mark Penn making millions of dollars.” He shook his head in disbelief. “Well it’s quite different.”
