The greatest Canadian of all times!

Confidence is a prerequisite for politics, and Mr. Rolland appears to have had it when he put himself forward in 1955 as "the only man in the world who can solve the unemployment problem in Ontario."

What a stroke of luck that he was willing to serve.

Unfortunately, the electorate failed to fully grasp their good fortune.

Running in the Toronto riding of Eglinton, he placed last, winning only 252 votes, or 0.7% of the total. Fortunately, he had watchmaking to fall back on.

  1. Even now, a true Canadian cringes to see such self promotion. :D
