Showplace invites you to engage with Steve in a lively discussion of his 584-page book—the first authorized biography of Ontario’s 18th Premier, Bill Davis—entitled Bill Davis: Nation Builder, and Not So Bland After All.

Davis is remembered fondly as the father of the community college system, TVO, OISE, and as an indispensable player in the repatriation of the Canadian Constitution and the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
