Dalton Camp

Liberal columnist, one-time denizen of political back rooms in the Progressive Conservative Party of Canada


I sensed that power is a blind and omnipresent force, that it is indiscriminate and immoral, and that men who wield it are also prisoners of it.

1970 - from his book Gentlemen, Players and Politicians
The essentials of Canadian politics are few: the system needs enough good men to make it work and enough fools to make it interesting. Of all the parties, none is more interesting than the Progressive Conservative Party of Canada.

quoted in Columbo's New Canadian Quotations by John Robert Columbo
Politics is made up largely of irrelevancies.

The danger of democracy has always been the danger of an electorate seized by passivity.

quoted in Columbo's New Canadian Quotations by John Robert Columbo
