In Conversation with Steve Paikin on his book on “John Turner”

Acclaimed TVO journalist, Steve Paikin, brings to life John Turner (1929-2020), one of the most glamorous and forgotten politicians in Canadian history.

Former Canadian Prime Minister John Turner, was in office for just 11 weeks and known for leading his Liberal Party after a great victory, to a shocking defeat to Brian Mulroney’s Conservatives. Why and how did this happen to a veteran politician? Is this how he should be remembered?

Steve Paikin has written an engaging and passionate biography. In this surprisingly candid and personal book, Paikin draws on unprecedented access to Turner’s personal and public papers to show how he struggled to meet the towering expectations that came with his abundant talents, and keep his faith in Canadian democracy.

Oct. 1: Steve Paikin on his book John Turner
