Former Canadian PM, John Turner is dead

1 Mins read

According to the reports, former Canadian Prime Minister John Turner, who was in office for just 11 weeks died on Saturday aged 91.

His 79-day tenure as prime minister was the second shortest in Canadian history. Only Charles Tupper beat his record with 68 days. He served from May to July in 1896.

Turner’s political career had its lowest point when he led his Liberal Party to a massive electoral defeat in 1984

He took over from Pierre Trudeau in late June 1984 at a time of increasing voter fatigue with the Liberals, who had been in power for 20 of the previous 21 years.
