Campaign School: Bill Fox
Bill Fox, the campaign manager, press secretary and communications director for Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, will step into the Academy of the Impossible for a discussion about what it took to triumph on Parliament Hill in the 1980s — and how things have transformed in Ottawa since that era.
Campaign School has previously played host to MPs Andrew Cash and Carolyn Bennett, along with Toronto Councillor Shelley Carroll, each of whom have shared their varied experiences on the campaign trail and subsequent experiences in office.
Fox, who was a bureau chief for the Toronto Star prior to his stint in the PMO, went on to play a role in public affairs at CN, Bombardier and BCE. Currently a consultant at law firm Stikeman Elliott and partner in children's and family entertainment company Wizard Hat Productions — in addition to an ongoing role in political campaigns — he will be our first guest to share the campaign experience from a Conservative point of view.
