Description

This book offers a raw, off-the-record account of the 1976 Progressive Conservative Party convention, a crucial passage in the turbulent history of one of Canada's most enduring political institutions.

While the convention was on, the authors were at work behind the scenes, talking to the delegates as well as the candidates and the party power brokers, and attending all the convention events: the balloting, speeches, policy sessions and tributes, the hospitality suites, hoedowns, victory parties and breakfasts. The result is a lively informative look at the nuts-and-bolts of party politics.

Winners, Losers is a fast-paced account of an important period in Canadian conservative politics, with portraits of its dominant figures--Joe Clark, Dalton Camp, Paul Hellyer, Brian Mulroney.
