WILSON, Gordon

Author Tags: Politics

Gordon Wilson's political and private life remains a drama in progress. As the former leader of the B.C. Liberal Party who became an MLA for Sunshine Coast/Powell River, he wrote a wide-ranging book of philosophy and political science entitled A Civilized Revolution (Ronsdale, 1996) with input from John Munro who also provided a biographical summary. The book was intended to serve as Wilson's blueprint for the future as envisioned by and for his new Progressive Democratic Alliance, a provincial political party he formed with Judy Tyabji (Wilson) who also became an author and MLA, as well as Wilson's spouse.
