And speaking of prying eyes, is it just us or does that really big picture of John Diefenbaker on the Diefenbaker Web page look kinda spooky? As if, maybe, the Chief is still watching over us? "Dief the Chief," as he was known, was our 13th prime minister, serving from 1957 to 1963. Using our amazing powers of recall, we can tell you that his government saw "the passage of the Canadian Bill of Rights, a 'roads-to- resources' program to encourage the development of northern resources, legislation providing support for agriculture, encouragement of technical training and improved health and welfare programs." He was also responsible for pulling the plug on the Avro Arrow... but we know better than to start that particular conversation. One thing for sure, though; Diefenbaker knew how to make headlines, and this site is the perfect stop for history buffs (and late-night essay writers) to brush up on one of Canada's most colorful prime ministers.
