Was Laurier Canada’s Obama? By Prof. Elsbeth Heaman

Dr. Elsbeth Heaman, Professor at the Department of History and Program Director at the McGill Institute for the Study of Canada, points to parellels between Obama's Presidency and Wilfrid Laurier's tenure as the first Catholic French-Canadian Prime Minister in her interesting article,  "Was Laurier Canada's Obama?" in ActiveHitory.ca.  Professor Heaman recently completed her monograph about taxes and tax revolts in Canada from 1867 to 1917. A remarkable achievement!
