A great read about an energetic time in BC politics that resulted in lasting legacies - e.g., Labour Relations Board, Agricultural Land Reserve and much more. This is a personality-based history - but what personalities! I didn't remember that during the years of WAC Bennett, BC had no Hansard, & no question period. Barrett's brief government was far from perfect (but what government is?) but lots was accomplished and it helped open up government more to public scrutiny. Recommend highly to anyone in B.C. &/or who enjoys politics.
