  • Description

    Lester Pearson, the former Canadian Prime Minister, died last night aged 75. He was taken into hospital on Christmas eve, suffering from cancer, which caused him to lose his right eye two years ago.

    His years of premiership were marked by a succession of welfare measures such as medical care insurance. As a career diplomat, foreign minister, Liberal Party leader and Premier, Mr. Pearson brought Canada to a greater political maturity -- freer of political influence from Britain and the United States.
