In this edition of The Beacon AIMS presents two papers on how to improve health care in Canada. Also, we have two of Charles Cirtwill‘s fornightly columns for the Chronicle-Herald. The first examines the upside of abolishing school boards, the second explores the downside of government “buy local” campaigns.

Also in this edition: Ian Munro is interviewed about the GST cut by the Globe & Mail, Bobby O’Keefe takes a look at Moncton’s reading and writing assessments, and AIMS’ founding president is named one of the 100 most influential people in Ottawa by The Hill Times.
