Prime Ministers of Canada: RB Bennett


Richard B. Bennett was the Prime Minister of Canada during some very challenging years – the Great Depression. Most summaries of his life in politics refer to him as egotistical. Having made his own wealth, his policy on working hard to earn your income didn’t really sit well with the people who were struggling in this period of financial crisis. A last minute effort to try and appease the people with better economic support failed, with a new Prime Minister being elected shortly after. He retired to England, where he was given a title of nobility and lived the rest of his days.
