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.

Wayne MacKinnon is the author of a new biography of Catherine Callbeck called "The Politics of Principle". It will be launched this weekend.
