Author Wayne MacKinnon - The Politics of Principle

Catherine Callbeck holds a place in Canadian political history. She was the first woman elected to lead a government in Canada... and has achieved many honours over her five decade career. What many Islanders may NOT know are the many barriers she had to overcome along the way... including being naturally shy. Wayne MacKinnon is the author of a new biography of Catherine Callbeck called "The Politics of Principle". It will be launched this weekend.
