Dr. Michel Beaulieu Contributing Writer

New Publication on former Prime Minister Louis St-Laurent and Regional Development. 
Dr. Michel S. Beaulieu has contributed to a new edited collection exploring the life and career of former Canadian Prime Minister Louis St-Laurent. Published by UBC Press and edited by Patrice Dutil of Ryerson University, the contributors to The Unexpected Louis St-Laurent: Politics and Policies for a Modern Canada explore the emergence of Canada's modern identity and how it emerged from the innovative social policies and ambitious foreign policy of Louis St-Laurent’s Liberal government. Dr. Beaulieu's chapter,  “'But There Is Another Source of Liberty and Vitality in Our Country:' St-Laurent and Regional Development," explores St-Laurent's view of the "regions" of Canada and how strong national unity would stem the tide of communism.
