Only twelve women have ever reached Canada’s most senior political role: as a First Minister (Prime Minister or Premier). The leadership of these remarkable women spans three decades, crosses political stripes, and extends from coast to coast to coast.
No Second Chances is about examining the rise and fall of these women – and what their experiences reflect about us as Canadians.
Twelve Women. Three Decades. One Journey.
This is No Second Chances.
