Summary
Edited by veteran political speech writer and PM historian Arthur Milnes, this work features commentary by seven of Laurier's living successors as Prime Minister of Canada, eminent members of the judiciary, past and sitting premiers, well-known domestic and international politicians, journalists, and voices from academia. As Canada stands on the cusp of her sesquicentennial, and as we collectively celebrate Sir. Wilfrid Laurier's 175th birthday, this work will be an essential part of the library of any Canadian seeking a further understanding of the words that defined the nation: Laurier's words
