Change at the Dominion Institute

Rudyard Griffiths's op-ed in the Globe & Mail today is behind the paywall. But the important line is the bio: "Rudyard Griffiths resigns today as executive director of the Dominion Institute."

I guess the DI is solid enough to continue (go, Alison), but it will not be quite the same. Rudyard wasn't just the master impresario of CanHist, he was the only one. The role only seemed to exist when he did it.

I'll miss him at the DI, but then I doubt he's going to vanish. Lots of people say his next big job will be as prime minister....

Update: I now see Sarah Hampson has a profile of RG in the same issue of the paper, also paywalled.
