Professor Robert Young – In Memoriam

The Canadian Political Science Association has lost a dear friend and valued colleague, with the death of Bob Young. Bob was President of the CPSA in 2003-04, and had a long and distinguished career at the University of Western Ontario. He was one of the nation’s leading scholars on Canadian federalism and also the significance of multilevel governance for public policy at the municipal level. He held a Canada Research Chair in Multilevel Governance and received a number of awards and distinctions for both research and teaching. He published extensively on federalism, provincial politics, municipal politics and social policy. He was also an important contributor to projects at the Institute of Intergovernmental Relations at Queen’s University. He was a regular participant at CPSA meetings and in addition to his outstanding contributions to research and service, will be fondly remembered for his good humour and as a witty conversationalist. We send our condolences to his family, colleagues and friends.

Janet Hiebert,
CPSA President
