The Last Liberal


Dave Carley

About the Book

Ron Bloom is the Education Minister and ostensibly in favour of the public school system. However, two clouds arrive on the horizon, which shake up his ideals: his son develops disciplinary problems that the public system cannot seem to address, and there is an election looming. If Bloom can find a way to loosen the purse strings to support the private system, his party stands to win a handful of extra swing seats…


The Last Liberal is too singular a tale to be universally about politics; it isn’t just about what a government will do to stay in power, but rather what a parent will do to save his son.” – Ottawa Citizen

“…An amazingly timely look at politics in action… a play with a very good story to tell.” – Variety
