Like most cultural trends, it took a few years for the conservative revolution that made Ronald Reagan U.S. president in 1980 to migrate to Canada. One of its most influential, yet least known, emissaries was Republican political genius Arthur Finkelstein. He came north to teach the National Citizens Coalition – then one of very few serious conservative advocacy groups in Canada – how to raise a right-wing ruckus, and money. Eventually his lessons would be learned by NCC president Stephen Harper, lessons that helped him become prime minister. To mark Finkelstein’s recent passing, former NCC V-P Gerry Nichols reflects on his important contributions to Canada’s conservative movement.
