Stephen McNeil

Principle and Politics

  Author:   Dan Leger    
  Publisher:  Nimbus Publishing Limited

The anticipated biography of the polarizing former Nova Scotia premier, from award-winning journalist and author of Duffy.

In today’s moralistic politics, to differ is to sin. But Stephen McNeil actually was different; he willingly committed the political sin of valuing principle over popularity. Premier of Nova Scotia for seven years, through elections, unrest, danger, and even tragedy, McNeil was determined to govern by putting principle first. Not everyone agreed with him or his priorities, but he accepted that because he was in politics for reasons other than the quest for power and the need to keep it. In Stephen McNeil: Principle and Politics, award-winning journalist and author Dan Leger argues that McNeil’s name should be there when we talk about premiers of consequence.

With twenty-five black and white photos and a full-colour photo insert, Stephen McNeil: Principle and Politics tells the untold inside story of McNeil’s eventful career in politics. Through exclusive interviews with political insiders and with McNeil himself, Leger reveals that, like him or not, Stephen McNeil has had a lasting impact on the lives of Nova Scotians.
