Remarks by the Clerk to the National Association of Federal Retirees

| Privy Council Office | speeches

Next week, I mark 36 years in the Public Service. From Trudeau to Trudeau in 36 years. My wife considers me a failed retiree. I tried to leave in 2014, and Janice Charette asked me to stay and do another job, and I tried to leave in 2016, and the Prime Minister asked me to stay and do another job. I will get it right one of these days!

This is, I understand, the largest Manion Lecture in its distinguished history. There are something like 900 of you here tonight and many more hundreds online, and there will be an audience that lives on in the program being recorded and recaptured. This is a tremendous accomplishment for the School and I want to congratulate and thank them in advance.
