Former Canadian prime minister Brian Mulroney talks to Maclean's about the Horatio Alger Association and growing role of philanthropy up north.
"For a veteran of many of Canada’s most bruising political battles, Brian Mulroney was low-key and thoughtful when he met Maclean’s in Montreal. The former prime minister was eager to talk about his work as vice-president of the board of directors of the Horatio Alger Association of Canada, a charitable organization dedicated to education, hard work and determination. Since 2009 the Horatio Alger Association has offered scholarships in four provinces to high school students based on need, merit, and perseverance in overcoming adversity. On May 19, it announced a $10-million expansion of the scholarship program to schools across Canada." -- Paul Wells, Maclean's
