Decent summary of Barrett’s political career.

He was a scrappy social democrat who was responsible for some important progressive legislation in his three year stint as BC premier. But you won’t be surprised to learn, as he later told a reporter, that “none of the things we did, not one, was radical. Not one. And in the light of history that’s even more evident.”
