Jean Chrétien, the 20th prime minister of Canada, was a special guest on TVO's superlative public affairs program The Agenda this past Tuesday evening. It was great seeing him again. "The Little Guy from Shawinigan" (Le p'tit gars de Shawinigan) was as direct and honest as ever as he took questions from show host Steve Paikin. At 84 years of age Chretien still carries the passions he so often exhibited during his long political life.
Monsieur Chrétien promotes his new book "Jean Chrétien: My Stories, My Times". To me it sounds like a good read.
