As a Fellow

Adam is co-author, with Tasha Kheiriddin, of the book Rescuing Canada’s Right: Blueprint for a Conservative Revolution, which the Toronto Sun called “the most forward-thinking book on Canadian conservatism in more than a generation.” He worked on the book during his time as a Sauvé Scholar; it was published in the fall of 2005, and a book launch was held at Sauvé House.

Sauvé Testimonial:

Living in Sauvé House changed my views on certain issues and made me think about others in ways I had not considered before.
