Prime Ministers: Ranking Canada's Leaders

Who is Canada's greatest prime minister - and who is the worst?
This lively and opinionated ranking of our leaders since Confederation explores the qualities of leadership and character that enable some people to succeed at our highest office, and the weaknesses that cause others to fail miserably. What determines a great prime minister? Is it a national vision, decisiveness, strong character, honesty, good timing, or just plain good luck? Prime Ministers: Ranking Canada's Leaders shows how these factors combine to shape the destiny of leaders.
Prime Ministers
Here are succinct and compelling portraits of our prime ministers as they faced the challenges of their day, from William Lyon Mackenzie King (no. 1) to Kim Campbell (no. 20), including Jean Chrétien (no. 9).
