André Laurendeau was one of Quebec's leading postwar journalists and nationalists, whose insistence on the seriousness of separatism led Lester Pearson to set up the Royal Commission on Bilingualism and Biculturalism, with Laurendeau as co-chair.
Laurendeau's diary covers the period of the commission, and recounts his encounters with English Canadians and Quebecois in the 1960s. Public figures of the era like René Levesque, Lester Pearson, Gerald Pelletier, Pierre Trudeau and George Grant appear, and Laurendeau has an eye for the telling incident.
The Diary of André Laurendeau offers rare insights into relations between French- and English-speaking Canada in the 1960s that remain relevant to Canada's perennial constitutional debates.
