Also, please limit examples to those at least twenty-five years old, so that they are proven to stand the test of time and to prevent troper agendas. Presumably he had some political policies or something, passed some laws maybe during his tenure as PM. Which party was Holt in, anyway?

Which isn't necessarily better. However, the only thing China really needs to know about Australian security is that we managed to lose our fucking Prime Minister. Bob Hawke is known only for drinking beer and publicly supporting people skipping work to watch a boat race, and Gough Whitlam is generally remembered not for free university educations or buying the painting Blue Poles, but for being sacked.

To be fair, Bob Hawke held the world speed record for beer drinking.

He drank about 1. He is currently the only Australian Prime Minister to have held this record. The late Governor-General John Kerr is still best remembered, and even vilified, for his role in the Australian Constitutional Crisis of '75, which saw the aforementioned sacking of Whitlam and ended up having far-reaching consequences even outside of the country, as dramatised in the spy thriller The Falcon and the Snowman.

Canada Sir John A Macdonald is remembered for being frequently drunk in Parliament, for being the only Canadian prime minister to be forced to resign for corruption over contracts to build the Canadian Pacific Railway, and for his less than charitable attitudes towards First Nations.

Robert Borden was on the whole a fairly well-regarded Prime Minister in the English speaking parts of Canada, especially in the western provinces.

In Quebec, however, he and the Conservative Party were never forgiven for the conscription policies he imposed during World War Iand outside of interludes under the PMships of John Diefenbaker and Brian Mulroney, the Conservatives and their successors have never been a serious electoral force in that province since then.

Arthur Meighen is regarded as the Butt-Monkey of Canadian prime ministers, with his party reduced to third-party status and Meighen losing his own seat in the bargain barely a year after he became PM, and then his next attempt at forming a government lasting only one week before being defeated in a vote of confidence, and then Meighen losing his own seat again at the next election.

Since he didn't last long enough as Prime Minister to achieve much of anything, this is all he's remembered for. Although he probably got off easy on that one, given other things such as his statement, when asked how many Jewish refugees would be allowed into Canada, that "none is too many", and his apparent inability or unwillingness to recognize just what kind of person Hitler really was even as the truth about the concentration camps in Germany came to light.

John Diefenbaker's time as Prime Minister is generally only remembered and not in complimentary terms for his part in pulling the plug on development of the Avro Arrow, a fighter jet that was several years ahead of its time.

The only other thing of note he's remembered for is his infamously awful relationship with John F.

Kennedywhich eventually culminated in Kennedy giving campaign support and resources including conveniently leaked news stories to rival Lester Pearson, who would dethrone Diefenbaker in Pierre Trudeau, who is arguably the architect of modern Canada, is remembered mainly for doing such things as flipping off a bunch of protesters, sliding down the banisters at Buckingham Palace, doing a pirouette behind the Queen on national television, and mouthing "fuck off" on the floor of Parliament and then describing what he said as "fuddle duddle".

Or now, for his ludicrously good-looking son becoming PM. In Quebec he's also remembered for declaring martial law during the October Crisis inwhen Quebec independence terrorists kidnapped politicians, murdering one, and for saying "Well, just watch me!

Joe Clark was the only politician to ever defeat Trudeau in an election, winning a minority government in Unfortunately, Clark is now a living punchline for his efforts to force through his first budget as prime minister despite only having a minority government Clark's minority government collapsed on a non-confidence vote, and Trudeau came right back to power in the snap election that followed.

Robert Stanfield came dangerously close to toppling the still-popular Pierre Trudeau in the election, and is still widely regarded as the finest leader of the Progressive Conservatives if not any Canadian political party who never got the opportunity to be Prime Minister.

However, the image that most Canadians remember of him is his comically fumbling and dropping a football during the election campaign.Car Industry Volkswagen tries to control the weather, angers Mexican farmers.
