TORONTO, Dec. 6 /CNW/ - Former prime minister Jean Chrétien sits down
with TVO's Allan Gregg for a wide-ranging interview Friday December 14, 2007
at 10 pm on Allan Gregg in Conversation. They discuss Chrétien's views on the
state of politics in Canada, his recent heart surgery, as well as his new
memoir, My Years as Prime Minister.
Released earlier this fall, the book chronicles the high points and
challenges of Chrétien's decade in office as Canada's twentieth prime minister
- including eliminating the national deficit, the 1995 cliffhanger Quebec
referendum on separation, his decision to keep Canada out of the Iraq war, and
the rift between Chrétien and his successor, Paul Martin.
