World Leader
    (December 17, 1874-July 22, 1950)
    Tenth Prime Minister of Canada (1921-1926, 1926-1930, 1935-1948)
    Leader of Canada during World War II
    His first term ended with a bribery scandal.
    He tried to get the Governor General to dissolve Parliament, and he refused, one of the few times a Governor General has refused a Prime Minister.
    He met with Hermann Göring and Adolf Hitler before World War II started in order to avoid war, and came to the conclusion that Hitler was a 'reasonable man' working to improve his country during the Great Depression.
    He wrote in his diary that Hitler 'might come to be thought of as one of the saviors of the world.'
    He told a Jewish delegation, 'Kristallnacht might turn out to be a blessing.'
    When Germany invaded Poland, he did not declare war right away with Great Britain, and waited until September just to assert his independence.
    He promised that there would be no mandatory conscription of males, but eventually he did so anyway.
    He firmly believed in the psychic power of crystal balls and would rarely make an important political decision without consulting one.
    He would consult the spirits of Leonardo da Vinci, Louis Pasteur, his dead mother and his dog.
    He would never marry, but he had a prolonged affair with a married woman.
    He held five university degrees.
    He created the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (1936).
    He created Trans-Canada Airlines, a prerequisite to Air Canada (1937).
    He helped pass through many social programs to help Canada out of the depression.
    He supported the Allied cause during World War II with needed Canadian troops.
    He helped found and support the United Nations.
    He served 22 years as the freely elected leader of Canada, the longest combined time in a Prime Minister position in British Commonwealth history.
