Five top public servants to be honoured


Five Clerks of the Privy Council to be honoured by Canada's Public Policy Forum.

Not many Canadians know about this position. Fewer know what these public servants do. But the Clerk of the Privy Council, who advises prime ministers and the cabinet, is the most senior non-political official in the government of Canada.

Five former Clerks of the Privy Council will be honoured by Canada's Public Policy Forum at its 26th Annual Testimonial Dinner & Awards in Toronto on Thursday (April 11). The Forum is an independent not-for-profit organization  which promotes the quality of government and the public service.

The five former Clerks to be honoured are Kevin Lynch (2006-2009), Alex Himelfarb (2002-2006), Mel Cappe (1999-2002), Jocelyne Bourgon (1994-1999),
and Paul Tellier (1985-1992).

RCI's Wojtek Gwiazda spoke to David Mitchell, the President and CEO of the Public Policy Forum.
