Understanding the disconnect between fiscal restraint and nonprofit services to communities: Ontario Budget II


Keenan Wellar on Nonprofit Quarterly

It’s a good thing my editor is somewhat flexible on my work limit, because exploring the issues around the current Ontario budget – from the choices being made to the implementation process to the impact on communities – is almost overwhelming. Please check out my effort and let me know: am I making sense or just adding to the confusion?

Tip of the cap to my Order of Canada father


Keenan Speaks

I’ve fallen way behind on keeping my “Keenan Speaks” site updated, probably because any “extra time” I have goes to my new role with Nonprofit Quarterly, mainly contributing weekly newswires.  I have continued my regular appearances on the 1310 News Power Lunch (about once a month) and on March 22 had a bit of fun discussing the issue of “new bridges” for Ottawa. I had mentioned to host Mark Sutcliffe that my father Barry Wellar had recently received the Order of Canada, and he brought this up in the context of this topic, so I channeled dad a bit in this segment that ends with a Barry-style zinger!
