St-Laurent speaks to Jeanne Sauvé
It's the top office in Canada, and the person holding it can often seem larger than life. Typically, a prime minister communicates with the public via press conference or scripted speech. But when a Canadian prime minister sits down with a CBC journalist in a more intimate setting for an in-depth chat, we get a better picture of what that prime minister is really like. CBC Digital Archives has pulled together a selection of one-on-one interviews with Canadian prime ministers, from Louis St-Laurent to Stephen Harper.
Broadcast Date: Oct. 17, 1961
