Canadian Liberals 1963 Colouring Book

An election campaign colouring book issued by Lester B. Pearson’s Liberals to defeat incumbent John Diefenbaker’s Conservatives (and Tommy Douglas’ new NDP party) in 1963.

Best line?: “This ia a beautiful Conservative rug. It is a wonderful place to hide things, especially facts. If neccessary, it will even cover up a financial crisis.”

2nd best?: “This is an NDP party. They are discussing their platform. They are against just about everything. Sometimes they are even against themselves.”
