Comments Wilfrid Laurier

  1. After having read the majority of this series, I found this book a little bland I think much of it can be attributed to the author s style which I found a generically straight forward account of the historic tensions between Canadian Anglo and Francophones tinged with interjections of Ralston Saul s social democratic views, of what he believes, constitutes the legacy of Extraordinary Canadians Not a bad read, but not near as interesting as Big Bear, Rene Levesque or LaFontaine and Baldwin, for e [...]


  2. Andre Pratte s short biography of Wilfrid Lauier, part of the series, Extraordinary Canadians, was close to that An excellent insight into a mostly forgotten Prime Minister of Canada, albeit the first French Canadian PM Overshadowed by Macdonald and Trudeau, Laurier is an exceptionally fascinating PM Great read for any interested in Canadian history.


  3. A pedestrian but reliable thematic biography of the French Canadian Prime Minister who was instrumental in forging the idea that is Canada Could have been subtitled A Career in Compromise Fascinating to read this immediately after Ignatieff s memoir.


  4. Well done short bio of an important figure in Canadians history The books in this series are perfect for those who would like a bare bones look at the lives in question For me, a few of these books have piqued my curiosity and led me to research expansive works on the subject.


  5. Une courte biographie de Laurier, agr able et facile lire Andr Pratte r ussit livrer l essence du caract re de cet illustre Canadien fran ais, le premier tre Premier ministre du Canada.
