This is a must read for anyone interested in Ontario politics. Greg Sorbara takes us on the roller-coaster ride of the past three decades encompassing seven premiers, three different parties in power, and a sea change in the province’s economic and political culture. To accompany us on the ride, there is a rich supply of insider anecdotes from someone who was directly involved in all the changes.
