"Compromise has remained a good thing in the mosaic called Canada, contributing indirectly and in its own mysterious way to whatever good humour, proportion, tolerance, judgment, and civility we have achieved. When such fundamental things apply, we can learn more about how best to live together, develop public policy, and cherish the natural environment of which we are the stewards." Roy MacLaren - student of literature and history, sailor, diplomat, businessman, writer, politician, and cabinet minister - has led a good life, and an interesting one, sometimes as a witness, often as an actor. In The Fundamental Things Apply, MacLaren recounts the details of his varied life and career with wit and with charm.
