Queen’s School of Policy Studies Professor Kathy Brock can speak to the Gomery Commission report notes the report will obviously have impact on the new government's upcoming accountability act. "A critical component will also be the recommendations regarding whistle blowers and any considerations on public servants leaving for private sector positions. Another important dimension will be to strengthen accountability without hampering government efficiency and effectiveness – this is a tough balance. As for the culture of entitlement – to some extent that is a fact of power – the question is: what constraints are in the system to manage it when it sets in?"Dr. Brock's first area of expertise is Canadian politics and government. She leads the development of the School's new teaching and research activities in "Public Policy and the Third Sector."
She is the author of Executive Federalism: Beggar Thy Neighbour? New Trends in Canadian Federalism (Broadview Press, 2003).
