Once voted the Greatest Canadian of all time and known as the Father of Medicare, Tommy Douglas was a prairie politician who believed in democratic socialism, the crucial role of civil rights, and the great potential of cooperation for the common good. In the process he made democratic socialism a part of mainstream Canadian political life. Giller Prize–winning author Vincent Lam, an emergency physician who works on the frontlines of the health care system, brings a novelist’s eye to the life of one of Canada’s greats.
