Funny, we were ripping on PET not that long ago though.
For long lasting negative effects on our country which will resonate for years, borne of arrogance and shortsightedness I wouldn't feel bad giving him that label.  Maybe make it more accurate, something like "Worst Noncriminal Canadian of Influence".  He definitely has a shot at that title.

Bullshit. 

He was the Greatest PM we have had, and his leadership, and Ideas have resonated, and will resonate, what Canada is.  Tell me what Canadian PM has molded Canada, as much as he has, in the last century.

Well he brought about the UN and Canada's role in the world (that is too often applied in these times as our Forces only role). He steered Canada through WW2, and the recession that followed.

Mustn't leave out Lester B. Pearson. So much accomplished, even before becoming PM. And as PM, got a LOT of things done with a minority gov't.

And he introduced Conscription, then backed down when high casualty rates made the Canadian public rebel (not only in Quebec), throwing military leaders' numbers out the window.  Then there was unemployment insurance, God bless him.....

Next.

Ooh, ooh... don't forget the NEP!  True dough will be loved forever out here because of that little gem of socialist policy.

Because all the left-wing socialists I know wear leather coats and drive red sports-cars  ::)

Politics is just lose-lose. No matter what you do, some people will love you, and others will hate you. You'll have more crap thrown at you than Jane Goodall, and you're expected to just smile and keep kissing babies. No wonder Hillier is so adament about staying out of that concert hall....
