Policy Options is an open forum for the discussion of public policy, and so, ideally, we would let anyone comment directly on anything we publish. Unfortunately, experience has shown that open comment forums routinely degenerate and drive away reasonable people.

In lieu of open comments, we welcome considered, substantive, informed responses.

They must focus on evidence and logic, keeping opinion to a minimum. They must be clearly written. And they must be civil.

They can range from 200 to 1,000 words in length. Selected responses will be published in the Perspectives section of the website. Please include your name, town/province, email address and phone number. The latter two pieces of information are for verification purposes only and will not be published.

Please send submissions to jditchburn@irpp.org.
