She earned a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of British Columbia with honors in 1969.

I had no idea, James. And I'm amazed, as my father and step-mother lived in Canada and I was normally fairly up to date with events there.

Interesting names to have and Avril is a good name for a girl that you don't see much of.

Good morning James - I did not recognize the name.  I guess Canadian Prime Ministers are not remembered as easily as US Presidents.

Hmm, my friends from Canada would likely recognize her name, I will have to act smart around them, haha.

Well, thanks for educating me once again.  I once had a Canadan lady tell me that we Americans knew nothing about what happens in Canada even though our borders touch...She was right!  A

Still wondering why her mother left and if she ever got together with her daughter again.  Seems the mother missed a lot with all the wonderful accomplishments of the daughter.
