Wilfred Laurier

It’s commonly believed that Wilfrid Laurier was a great prime minister, an astonishing speaker, and a great survivor. Today, however, Laurier is not part of Quebec’s pantheon of heroes—he has been displaced by the more nationalist brand of politicians. André Pratte, chief editorial writer of La Presse, uncovers Laurier’s full complexity amid the charged political circumstances of the early 20th century.rnrn
