Ray has gone fishing.

He will be back soon – he doesn’t really catch very many fish.

Rivers goes fishing NZ - Jan 2015Give him a week – maybe two and he will be back at his keyboard explaining a government policy, giving us background and insights.

The change of government at the provincial level has Rivers pulling back and wondering if we are on our way to the days of Mike Harris. Thinking about just how big the provincial deficit is and how the Liberals will reinvent themselves and wondering as well just how efficient a Leader of the Opposition Andrea Horwath will be.

rivers-on-guitarGreat times for a political pundit – and given that Rivers couldn’t hook a fish if his dinner depended on it – expect him back soon.

Ray Rivers writes regularly on both federal and provincial politics, applying his more than 25 years as a federal bureaucrat to his thinking.  Rivers was once a candidate for provincial office in Burlington.  He was the founder of the Burlington citizen committee on sustainability at a time when climate warming was a hotly debated subject.     Tweet @rayzrivers
