I saw on TV Mulroney admit to the camera that he accepted a suitcase full of cash for acting in favor of Air Canada buying the European Airbus Industries' planes instead of Boeing. And he said on camera that "this was an error of judgment." Wow. And I heard on talk radio abt 10 yrs ago someone say that Brian had built a "castle" in China the same as some other N.American rich did. Do they know of something that's in the offing and which makes China a safer place in the near future? Biographies are often Biassed-graphies, if you mean what I know.

Question: - (In the 1980s) - Did Prime Minister, Brian Mulroney (a total double-talking, two-faced, mealy-mouthed scoundrel), really come a literal hair's breadth away from selling us naive, unsuspecting Canadians completely over to the all-mighty, power-hungry Americans?

Answer: - (In a nutshell) - Yep. (Before everyone finally wised up) - You can bet your bottom, Canadian dollar that Mulroney certainly came that close to doing that much damage to our nation.

In the nearly eleven hundred pages of this book, which is more honest and less pretentious than the autobiography of the same name by Pierre Trudeau, Mr Mulroney still fails to give a full explanation as to why he stacked the Senate in 1990, what he meant when he said he was "rolling the dice" in the brinkmanship on the Meech Lake Accord, and almost no comment whatsoever in the Airbus affair. It would have also been helpful to include the Meech and Charlottetown Accords as appendices so the reader could decide whether they would have been right for Canada or not. Still, this is a fine response to the "Secret Mulroney Tapes" by Peter C. Newman which made Mulroney, imperfect as he is, much worse than reality.
