When Brian Mulroney stepped down from office, Kim Campbell became the leader of the party, and ultimately the Prime Minister of Canada in June 1993. Her popularity amongst the voters was very high, which left her political party hopeful for a re-election in the fall of 1993. Unfortunately, her honesty and abruptness turned the voters against her, and she was brutally defeated by the opposition – making her time in office a mere 5 months.
