Read in January, 2008 — I own a copy

A Canadian political satire, won the Stephen Leacock prize. LOL.
Duncan Angus McLintock is a Scottish prof of engineering in Ottawa, who agrees to run as Liberal candidate in a federal election, as part of a horse trade that lets him escape the dreaded horror of teaching English to engineering students. He agrees to run in a riding that is the safest Tory seat in the country until…as the title says…
The Best Laid Plans" captured the simultaneous cynicism, idealism, humour and resignation that infects and defines Canadian politics.
Great fun.
