Prime Ministers of Canada Resources: Louis St. Laurent

Louis St. Laurent

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.
