Comment Announcement re: Gideon Strauss
October 12, 2010
Since Dr. Gideon Strauss became editor of Comment in 1999, the magazine has grown significantly. His contributions as editor and a valued member of the Cardus team are deeply cherished. On October 1, 2009, Gideon was appointed as Chief Executive Officer of the Center for Public Justice in Washington, D.C. At that time, the Center, Gideon, and Cardus agreed that Gideon would continue as Comment editor for an interim period. Due to his responsibilities at the Center for Public Justice, Gideon recently formally informed us that "with much regret, I must ask you to allow me to withdraw from the editorship of Comment magazine at your earliest convenience."
With deep appreciation for the work that Gideon has done, Cardus has accepted Gideon's withdrawal effective October 15, 2010. The current team will continue with the editorial work of Comment in the interim until a long-term solution is in place. We wish Gideon every success and God's blessing in the opportunities that lie before him. We look forward to his continued participation and contribution to Cardus and our common work together as opportunities for collaboration arise.
Senior Fellow and Director of Research, Cardus

In Cardus Audio this week, Milton interviewed The Right Honourable Paul Martin, who served as the 21st Prime Minister of Canada from 2003-2006. Mr. Martin has had a long interest in exploring how social enterprise can contribute to both the economic and social well-being of Canadians. In this interview, he reflects on the relationship between businesses, not-for-profits, and charities in Canada including the role that legal and financial structures play in social enterprise.
