On the day of the incident, Chrétien was in Hull (Gatineau), Quebec to commemorate the first National Flag of Canada Day. As Chrétien addressed the assembled crowd, anti-poverty activists heckled the Prime Minister over proposed changes to Canada's unemployment insurance program, and, as he made his way to his limousine at the cessation of the ceremonies, Chrétien was confronted by Clennett. At that moment, Chrétien grabbed Clennett by the back of the neck and chin, forcing Clennett to the ground and breaking one of his teeth.[1] Another protester who then blocked Chrétien's passage had his megaphone knocked away by the Prime Minister, and was promptly pushed to the ground by Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) officers.[2]

Chrétien later defended these actions, stating: "some people came my way... and I had to go, so if you're in my way...."[2] He also blamed the RCMP for allowing Clennett to obtain such close proximity to the Prime Minister, though the RCMP said they saw no breach of security.[2] Chrétien also demonstrated a casual attitude towards the affair, later joking that he had used the Shawinigan Handshake because he mistook Clennett for John Nunziata, whom Chrétien had dismissed from the Liberal caucus for voting against the 1996 budget.





A decent ale.

Certainly when we look at the great prime ministers of the 20th century, those that really stood the test of time, they were MPs from Quebec. There was Trudeau, there was Mulroney, there was Chrétien, there was Paul Martin. We have a role. This country, Canada, it belongs to us."

The riding of Prince Albert SK has elected the most PMs than any other riding.

3 of them.

Laurier, King and Diefenbaker

I don't think that's right. Our entire frontier with Russia is located there, not to mention an entire ocean.

So land should be voting rather than voters? How will this 300,000 square miles vote? And if you say the people on this land vote that means people who live there have a more valuable vote than people who live elsewhere. 1 person, 1 vote. Any non-stupid voting system will start with that premise.

"Start" could be an operative word. Would a combination of population and land area work? I would guess the reverse of that is the formula in P.E.I.

Land area is irrelevant. Land does not vote.

That only works when the population is more or less equal. Also we are not talking about changing how our representatives get elected, only how their power in the commons is applied. WE have a big divide between city and rural areas and rural areas do not have the representation required to have their needs delt with.
Many regional districts have weighted votes to cut down on the number of people at the table so it is not much different.

Spoken like a true liberal that voted for nice hair and selfies.

A conservative looks at policy.
