Today in the Sobel Timeline: February 7
The highlight of the 1968 Grand Council elections occurred on February 7, 1968, when the three major candidates for Governor-General of the Confederation of North America participated in a vitavised debate. The People's Coalition's nominee was incumbent Governor-General Carter Monaghan; the Liberal Party's nominee was Jason Winters, the Governor of Manitoba; and the newly-formed Peace and Justice Party's nominee was political scientist and best-selling author James Volk of Burgoyne University. The next day, most North American reporters seemed to think that Volk was the most attractive speaker, Monaghan's arguments the most convincing, and Winters' the most confusing.
