When Pierre Poilievre was elected leader of Canada's Conservative party in 2022, he vowed to put Canadians back in control of their own lives.

He took aim at the country’s elites and “gatekeepers” as well as governments that sneer at their own citizens. Railing against the housing crisis and spiralling inflation, Poilievre was telling ordinary Canadians he was on their side.As the adopted son of two Alberta teachers, Poilievre knows the middle class. But he's also the embodiment of a career politician, having spent nearly his entire adult life in politics. 

In Pierre Poilievre: A Political Life, journalist Andrew Lawton chronicles Poilievre's life, career, and his unique brand of conservatism which has galvanized supporters and detractors alike. The portrait that emerges is of a radically authentic yet intensely calculating individual who has been plotting his path to be Canada's prime minister since he was a teenager.
