2010 Was Great—2011 Will Be Even Better


T


I am delighted that we will be continuing our success in 2011. We will publish 4 issues (Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall) that will be filled with pages of political opinions and insights, the best of campaign tactics, tools and techniques.


he Year 2010 has been a great one for Campaigns & Elections and our family of writers, advisors, speak-


ers, analysts and readers. The Latin American and Cana- dian editions of the magazine were launched to fantastic success and the readership for each of these editions continues to experience strong growth. The Canadian edition alone has in- creased its readership nearly 500% from issue 1 to 3.


Along with our C&E family, I am delighted that we will be continuing our success in 2011. We will publish Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall Canadian issues that will fill the pages with political opinions and insights, the best of campaign tactics, tools and techniques, and share with our readers exciting and entertaining anecdotes and real world examples of political and campaign life. This issue, our last in 2010, recogniz-


es the role of women in politics. Our contributors have offered their views on the challenges facing women in the Canadian political system, and they offer sound advice to women consid- ering running for office, or building a career that is focused on politics. It is no secret that the world of politics in Canada is male centric. In the pages of this issue you will get a glimpse as to why this may be so, and what impacts this fact has had on democracy, gover- nance, public policy and elections. This issue also offers some insight into the municipal campaigns that recently happened in some Canadian provinces. It is said that all politics is local – if that is true, the provincial and federal parties may wish to take note –


“change” was the big theme in many of the municipal elections. We saw in- creased turnout in many municipalities with many incumbents on the receiv- ing end of voter frustration. In Manitoba, popular MP’s Inky Mark and Judy Wasylycia-Leis left their jobs on Parliament Hill to run for mayor – only to be rejected by the majority of voters. Big changes, in prominent Canadian municipalities, were afoot such as victories by Rob Ford in Toronto, Jim Watson in Ot- tawa, Naheed Nenshi in Calgary, Linda Osinchuk in Strathcona, Maurizio Bevilacqua in Vaughan, Eric Irwin in Dauphin, John Henry in Oshawa, Bob Bratina in Hamilton, and in keeping nicely with our main theme of this is- sue, congratulations go out to Sudbury Mayor-elect Marianne Matichuk, who ousted incumbent John Rodriguez, to become that city’s first woman mayor. Finally, I would like to welcome


C&E’s newest addition to the Canadian Editorial Advisory Board, Vancouver’s Marie Della Mattia. Marie is Presi- dent & CEO of NOW Communica- tions Group and has been a long-time reader, contributor and supporter of the magazine. She is also this issue’s Mover & Shaker. Please share your copy of C&E, and encourage others to do so. As always we welcome your thoughts, views and feedback to bmorton@campaignsandelections.com See you in 2011!
