BRAVE NEW EPOQUE

Birthdays. Anniversaries. New Year’s. These are celebrations of the most important passages in our lives. Around the world and throughout the ages, these milestones have provided continuity for people and societies. They have served as benchmarks against which we measure time and our own progress through life and history.

Where have all the political giants gone?

One day Pierre Trudeau, the coolest cat who ever played with politics, stood in front of the slavering Ottawa press anxious for details about the disintegration of his marriage to his young wife who had run off with The Rolling Stones. As always, he was completely controlled, smashingly superior, the man who told his bride that his family motto was “reason before passion.”

BREAKING THE MOULD

No one who was there on that magic weekend 30 years ago will ever forget it. The air in the Ottawa Civic Centre hung heavy with excitement and nervous trepidation (not to mention the body heat of nearly 10,000 people crammed into the undersized arena) as Liberals from every corner of the country gathered to choose their new national leader—and Canada’s 15th prime minister.
