“Yesterday’s Man” – not

I’m on the back stretch of the new book, and have hit a bit of a research roadblock.  I am looking for any and all articles containing commentary about the photo of this young man water skiing, way back on the Canada Day long weekend in 1993.  There is surprisingly little I can find.  Anyone who can help will get my thanks, and a mention in Fight the Right!

    Hi Warren. Didn’t find much more than the others on the water skiing story. However, in case you have not seen it, there all sorts of interesting things in this Radio-Canada bio en français on Monsieur Chrétien. Thought you might like it: http://www.radio-canada.ca/nouvelles/dossiers/tetes/chretien/deux.html

    I have a vague recollection that Susan Delacourt’s book Juggernaut mentioned it. Don’t have a copy on me to search for a page number. Could be wrong.

    Stock Day showed up at a scheduled news conference on a Seadoo and in a wet suit. Chretien was photographed at his own cottage while spending off time with family. Stock appeared to be grandstanding.
