Ontario's fortunes and fates increasingly rest in the hands of the province's premier. Critics say the role of premier concentrates too much power in one person, but at least that points to the one person Ontarians, and others beyond the province's borders, ought to know all about.
Join us for an insightful conversation on Ontario’s premiers from the vantage point of one of Canada's most astute and respected journalists. Few people know the modern-era premiers of Canada's most populous province the way Steve Paikin does. He has covered Queen's Park politics, discussed provincial issues from all perspectives with his TVO guests, and has interviewed the premiers one-on-one.
His new book, Paikin and the Premiers: Personal Reflections on a Half-Century of Ontario Leaders, offers a rare, uniform perspective on John Robarts, Bill Davis, Frank Miller, David Peterson, Bob Rae, Mike Harris, Ernie Eves, Dalton McGuinty, and Kathleen Wynne.
Books by participating authors available on-site. A booksigning will follow each event.
