Paul Martin was a successful Minister of Finance before he was elected to Prime Minister. With hopes of a major change and plans to better the government, he headed into his new position. Unfortunately, his time in leadership was clouded with scandal and public disapproval, leaving him with an election that removed him from office.
The most memorable changes that Mr. Martin seem to have made in his time of office were the approval of same-sex marriages in Canada, working towards a better health care system, and attempt to fix the gap of equal support for both aboriginal and non-aboriginal peoples.
