The Champions – René Lévesque vs Pierre Elliott Trudeau

A wonderful three-part series by the National Film Board of Canada. Watching the first twenty minutes of part two where the 1968 leadership race is held was of particular interest to me, having been at two different announcements this year in federally and provincially. The series can also be found on the NFB’s website here: http://www.nfb.ca/playlist/champions-series/
