Lafontaine and Baldwin are extraordinary Canadians, who introduced and brought democracy to to this country. They have put their lives to risk for the sake of a responsible government. If it wasn’t for Lafontaine and Baldwin to call the military troops to stop a group of orangemen who attacked parliament because the the bill was not vetoed by the governor general, we wouldn’t have the democracy that Canada has today. By working together they solved Canada’s political system which was much in need of reform.
Many say that they are one of the most historically significant Canadians, and I believe that is true. By bringing in responsible government, they were the first ones to introduce democracy to this country, which shaped the Canada it is today.
