Editorial Comments

Product Description:
Profiling the legacy of one of Canada's most important reformers, Prairie Giant: The Pastor Tommy Douglas Story explores the life of a social crusader and charismatic leader voted as the greatest Canadian of all time. Fiery prairie politician Tommy Douglas began as a Baptist preacher, but after witnessing injustices and the Great Depression's poverty in Saskatchewan, Tommy gives up his pulpit for politics and joins forces with the socialist Canadian Commonwealth Federation to institute new laws within Canada's government. Although blessed with brilliant insight, great speaking skills, and infectious charm, Tommy's youthful idealism soon causes him to run headlong into opposition from the rich and powerful. This fascinating biopic depicts how Tommy is credited with protecting Canadians from farm foreclosures, instituting government insurance, building roads, bringing electricity to rural communities, forming a Bill of Rights, and establishing universal healthcare in his country. Proving that one person can make a difference, this film is an enlightening history lesson about a charismatic leader whose courage, determination, and unwavering commitment transform Canada by establishing many of the social programs still enjoyed by citizens today.
