SPEAKER: Steve Paikin, Anchor, “The Agenda with Steve Paikin”, TVOntario and Author, in conversation with: Jamison Steeve, Executive Director, Martin Prosperity Institute – Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto

TOPIC: “Bill Davis: Nation Builder, and Not So Bland After All” (Dundurn, 2016)

BOOK SYNOPSIS: This is the first authorized biography of Bill Davis, the enigmatic Ontario premier who carried on a Tory dynasty, but was also a crucial supporter of Pierre Trudeau. A biography of one of Ontario’s most important premiers, who, despite having been out of public life for more than thirty years, is remembered fondly by many as the father of the community college system, TVO, OISE, and was indispensable in repatriating the Canadian Constitution with an accompanying Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Before he became premier, Davis was perhaps the most important education minister in Ontario history, responsible for the creation of the community college system and TVOntario. As premier, he went on to lead Ontario through buoyant and recessionary economic times, leaving a legacy Ontarians continue to enjoy. Now 87, Davis still lives on Main Street in his beloved Brampton.

COST: $45.00 plus HST per person (includes 1 hardcover copy of “Bill Davis: Nation Builder, and Not So Bland After All” and 1 seat for the conversation)
