For me, it's like a car accident. I was NOT a Mulroney fan, and was quite young when he was PM. But, a part of me is drawn to read it - the same part that is drawn to "rubber-neck" when driving by a car accident.

What about everyone else?

I do for the same reasons. I want to know what else he did/screwed up for us that I don't know about and what else he pushed through in spite of Canadians not wanting it(like NATO).

I will admit to smirking when I heard about the book and how he was so shocked/disappointed/upset about it. It's called Karma, deal with it.

I know i was in Grade 4 when he was PM because I remember sitting in the hallway with a map doing a test and some of the questions had to do with who the leader was and I didn't remember how to spell his last name.

lol, I was thinking that NAFTA was called something else before Mexico joined and thought it was NATO, but NATO was put into place long before Mulrooney was PM.

NAFTA should be done away with. Have you read The Fight For Canada? It is an excellent book on how the US has been trying to take control of Canada since the first explorers came over. The US gov'ts have been trying for years to approve a trade agreement so they could ultimately take over our land. Each Canadian gov't refused until Mulrooney came along. 84% of Canadians did not want it based on the referrendum and he signed it anyhow.

The man was unbelievable.... he had no vision of anything other than his own ego.

I would like read a "Cole's Notes" version of that. I believe that those comments likely are based in fact. For me, I keep thinking about the softwood lumber dispute, BSE, offshore fishing, and hydro. In each of those situations the US gov't has tried to bully Canada into basically giving them something for nothing. If they benefit financially, it's fine. If WE benefit financially, then we're taking advantage of them.
