Illustrated. 8vo, brown cloth spine with grey cloth boards, grey lettering to spine. The memoirs of the Newfoundland Liberal MP. "Brian Tobin's political career spanned some of the most dramatic moments of modern Canadian history. Elected in 1980 during the triumphantreturn of Pierre Trudeau, and serving under five prime ministers, Tobin wa s not only in the thick of the action - he often instigated it. Arriving from Newfoundland as a 25-year-old Liberal MP, Tobin was immediately immersedin the referendum for Quebec independence led by the charismatic Rene Leve sque, and then recruited to play a role in drafting the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. When Liberal leader John Turner lost a landslide election to Brian Mulroney's Conservatives, Tobin became a key member of the infamous Rat Pack, challenging the Tories daily in acrimonious debate. Yet, despite the sparks between them, Mulroney called on Tobin to help ease tensions at a critical juncture during efforts to ratify the Meech Lake accord. The return of the Liberals under Jean Chretien placed Fisheries Minister Brian Tobinat the help of a battle to save the lowly turbot -- the last food fish on the once-teeming Grand Banks. by seizing US fishing vessels, outmanoeuvringthe European Union in Brussels, and ordering a Canadian patrol vessel to f ire across the bow of a Spanish trawler, Tobin interrupted the rapacious practices of foreign fisheries on Canada's coasts. Later, he organized a massive rally in Montreal, which many believe helped swing the 1995 Quebec referendum toward federalism. In 1996, Tobin returned to Newfoundland and Labrador as Premier. Whether reforming the province's outmoded education system or conducting high-stakes negotiations over the development of the Voisey'sBay mine, Tobin exhibited the same fiery leadership." - from the dustjacke t.
