The face of Canada in the midst of the 50s, Louis St.Laurent seems to have been often referred to as “Uncle Louis” given his love for children and his down-to-earth sort of personality as seen in his campaigning.
During his time as Prime Minister, Newfoundland officially joined Canada as a province and the country became economically prosperous.
He remained as leader from 1948 to 1957, when his party was outvoted over issues related to a debate over a transcontinental pipeline.
