Governments at all levels, the world over, are facing similar financial restraints. Low voter turnout suggests that many people don’t have faith that governments can continue to deliver high quality public service, let alone resolve the big problems of our time, from climate change to obesity to traffic congestion.But so far, much of the public debate about government’s role has revolved around two polarizing questions; whether to cut services, or raise taxes.But there is a growing movement among policy experts, both within and outside of government, that the way forward must go beyond the debate over service cuts or maintaining the status quo that in the future, governments must fundamentally transform themselves.Policy experts such as Matthew Mendelsohn, co founder of the Mowat Centre for Policy Innovation, believes that public service is at a fork in the road and that the financial crisis facing Ontario’s government is both a threat and an opportunity to transform government’s role in our lives.A series of reports, called Shifting Gears (3.3 MB pdf), by the Mowat Centre has helped inform the work of the Drummond Commission.
