Guest speaker Bob Plamondon will talk about “Blue Thunder,” the Canadian Conservative prime ministers from the end of the First World War up to — but not including — Stephen Harper. With this talk, the Old Ottawa East Community Association will conclude its 11-part sesquicentennial celebration of our prime ministers.
Learn more about Brian Mulroney’s long-serving governments and how they enhanced the conservative values of Canada, how John Diefenbaker made key changes in Canadian domestic and foreign policies, and how R.B. Bennett’s government of the 1930s made enduring changes to the Canadian fabric.
Mr. Plamondon is a specialist on Canadian prime ministers who wrote Blue Thunder: The Truth About Conservatives from Macdonald to Harper, as well as biographies on Pierre Trudeau and Jean Chrétien.
