Speakers Program – J. D. M. Stewart on “Being Prime Minister”
Author and history teacher James Stewart will speak about his new book, which paints insightful pictures of the human beings behind the headlines. Through anecdotes and stories, he reveals our leaders as they truly were.
Canada has had twenty-three prime ministers, all with views and policies that have differed as widely as the ages in which they lived. But what were they like as people? Being Prime Ministertakes you behind the scenes to tell the story of Canada’s leaders and the job they do as it has never been told before.
From John A. Macdonald to Justin Trudeau, readers get a glimpse of the prime ministers as they travelled, dealt with invasions of privacy, met with celebrities, and managed the stress of the nation’s top job. Humorous and hard working, vain and vulnerable, Canada leaders are revealed as they truly were.
