Canada Election 2011: Queen’s political history scholar discusses voter turnout

KINGSTON, Ontario – Arthur Milnes is about as knowledgeable a historian on Canadian prime ministers as you’ll find. He’s a fellow at Queen’s University and was a researcher on Brian Mulroney’s memoirs. I was up in Kingston recently and he and I got together for the first time in 16 years to talk 2011 Canadian election. He’s engaging, as you’ll see from the video. We’ll have a couple of clips of this interview posted here and you can also find him this Saturday on the cover of the Toronto Star’s Travel section discussing his unique Sir John A. Macdonald Walking Tour. Hope you enjoy and hope we can get more of Art talking U.S. and Canadian politics in the future. Art also knows a ton about American presidents – and has written books on them, as well. He’s headed to Plains, Georgia, to launch his book about Jimmy Carter’s influence on Canada, with the former president on hand.
