Rae, Bob

Former Ontario premier, and with Pierre Trudeau, one of the only fully literate Canadians ever elected as a head of state. Rae couldn’t handle his party’s powerful Labour Brigade nor Ontario’s corporate captains, and self-destructed three months into his government’s term of office by falling into the hands of his party’s Safety Nazis, who were the only people left willing to support him. Now a Toronto Star book reviewer and university lecturer, and Ontario spokesperson for obsolete social sanities.
