Archive: Jeffrey Simpson on Jean Chretien

Studio 2

Political columnist Jeffrey Simpson talks about his book "The Friendly Dictatorship", an analysis of the leadership of Jean Chretien. Simpson believes that the Canadian political system gives a Prime Minister too much power and that there is no credible alternative to the Liberal party. He thinks that part of Chretien's success was his ability to read the people. (Originally aired November 2001)
