The thirteen questions that comprise this assignment are based on the chapter on R.B. Bennett in J.L. Granatstein and Norman Hillmer's Prime Ministers: Ranking Canada's Leaders (1999). Students should benefit from this biographical sketch that offers many insights into Bennett's policies to combat the Great Depression, his attempts to introduce a Canadian version of the New Deal in 1935, and analysis into his reputation for being Canada's first Red Tory. The assignment also has several follow-up questions and key terms that should serve to heighten debate during classroom discussions.
