Abstract:

"He failed to eliminate the GST. He almost lost Canada to the separatists. And many people feel he could have prevented the sponsorship scandal. But if confronted with these and other ₃failings,₄ Jean Chr tien would reply: So what! The story of the feisty ₃little guy from Shawinigan₄ is still one of triumph, hard work, and determination. Dyslexia affected his speech and a childhood illness paralyzed one side of his face. Being teased and laughed at eventually turned him into a schoolyard scrapper. Neither flashy nor smooth, Jean sure could sound funny at times. He still holds the dubious honour of being misunderstood in both of Canada₂s official languages. But he had the smarts to get into power, stay in charge, and get a lot done. Not bad for a kid who was always in trouble at school, eh?"--Publisher's website (www.jackfruitpress.com)
