The following is an article from Uncle John's Curiously Compelling Bathroom Reader. Today, Canada has free universal health care. The man who made it happen: former Saskatchewan premier Tommy Douglas. Here's his story. LIFE AND DEATH In 1910, when Tommy Douglas was six years old, he injured his leg and it never healed properly.

Wilfrid Laurier: Speech in Defence of Louis Riel, 1874

The 1869 Métis uprising in Red River had deeply divided Canadians along religious and linguistic lines.

Wilfrid Laurier — by this time a federal MP in the new Liberal government of Alexander Mackenzie — stood firmly on Riel’s side. Laurier had little personal sympathy for Riel.
