Saul, John Ralston

He wears bedroom slippers in public and looks like one of those kids who got beaten up on a lot in elementary and high school, but appearances can be deceiving. He’s the only genuine intellectual he-man this country has. Despite being the Governor-General’s consort, he has the ability to anger Alberta’s right wing intellectual Mafia by announcing the end of Globalism, all while remaining Canada’s best (and perhaps only) liberal philosopher-at-large. He has also inspired the wrath of Canada’s Anglo academic community, mostly because his books actually get read. revised by David Banerjee
