The Power of the Prime Minister in Canada
Date: November 14, 2017
Time: 8:00 PM - 9:00 PM
How did the first PMs shape the office?

How has the PM's role changed in the last century?

Does the argument of a recent centralization of power still hold?

Join us on 14 November at 8pm in the O’Kelly VC Armoury (317 Park Avenue) as Dr. Patrice Dutil discuss how his latest book, Prime Ministerial Power in Canada: Its Origins Under Macdonald, Laurier and Borden, 1867-1920, explores these questions and the implications the answers have for Canadian domestic and international decision making.

This event is free and open to the public!
