World Leader
    (July 3, 1870-June 26, 1947)
    President of the Calgary Power Company (1910-1920)
    Conservative Party Leader (1927-1938)
    Eleventh Prime Minister of Canada (1930-1935)
    He was seen as indecisive during the peak of the Great Depression, when he was serving as Prime Minister.
    A lot of members of the Conservative Party abandoned it during his leadership.
    He ordered an attack on a meeting of 3,000 people dissatisfied with his leadership, which left one dead and many injured (1935).
    He tried following Franklin Delano Roosevelt's lead and introducing a form of New Deal legislation to Canada, which was seen as 'too little too late.'
    When people could no longer afford gasoline and began using oxen and horses to carry them around, they called them 'Bennett buggies' out of spite.
    He is the only former Prime Minister not buried on Canadian soil, and is buried in England.
    He was a victim of many economic circumstances that were beyond his control.
    He retired to Great Britain after his service to Canadian politics, and became a member of the House of Lords, making him the only Prime Minister to be extended that honor.
    He was a very generous man, and when people would mail him asking for help, he would answer them personally and send them money from his own pocket.
