Richard Starr chronicles the dramatic events of Richard Hatfield's seventeen years as premier of New Brunswick. The author recounts Hatfield's many legislative successes, his reform of political party finance and French-language legislation. He chronicles the failures and scandals as well, from the millions squandered on the Bricklin project to Hatfield's arrest for marijuana possession on the brink of the 1987 election.
Richard Hatfield: The Seventeen Year Saga is a fascinating, full account of the political career of one of Canada's most controversial leaders.
