Spent most of WW2 getting his advice from psychics and talking to his dog.

"How's the war going?"

"Yap, Yap, Yap, Yap."

His main ability was getting re-elected.

I'm doing a seminar on the topic: William Lyon Mackenzie, a great man? I'm in a grade 12 University Candian History class.
Now I've chosen the side of him being a great man.
I need 5 arguments to prove he was a great man. Does anyone have any suggestions?

So far I have:

1. His life was dedicated to improving the conditions of Candian society.
(examples: family allowance, employment insurance, etc)

I've got an idea of what the some of the arguments need to involve:
World War 2
The Depression
Canadian Independance- post World War 2
The Conscpription Crisis

I also have another question. Would the influence of others such as his Mother, Father, Grandfather and Laurier have a great impact on his life, and is that impact a positive? Would the influences of them make him a great man personaly and in his political career?

If anyone has any good links, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

This guy gets three for staying in office as long as he did. He was descended from a rebel and always was aware that people looked down on him.

He had a lot to do with the building of Canada, however. It is kind of a jerry-built country but still manages to hang together.

Mentally ill and anti-semitic.

I think he is one of the better PMs in our history. He led us through the Great Depression after Richard Bennett 'the Great'. He led us through WW2, although Churchill and Roosevelt each took turns sticking their hands up his a$$ and using him as a sock puppet. He loses points for what happened at Dieppe and in Hong Kong, but he can really be blamed. Although, he was the man that said 'Kristallnacht might turn out to be a blessing'. Good PM, not great, but good.

Sounds like a funny guy, Irishgit, but I don't know if I would want this character running my country.
