Patrick Cousineau likes to say that if he’s doing his job properly, you will not find him in a Google search. A lifetime of work in the background of politics means he is focused on making things happen and solving problems from behind the scenes. And while his work has had a national impact – serving as deputy chief of staff and director of parliamentary affairs to the cabinet minister in three federal ministries and now the Senate – it is the seamless melding of competing interests, expertise and vision that is his ‘day at the office’ on Parliament Hill.
