The Secret Mulroney Tapes: Unguarded Confessions of a Prime MinisterCanada's most controversial Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, famous for his failed Meech Lake Accord that would have altered Canada's constitution granting extraordinary powers to the province of Quebec, chokes on his own words:
|The Globe and Mail reports: OTTAWA -- Brian Mulroney feels "devastated" and "betrayed" and regrets talking candidly to Peter C. Newman, a spokesman said yesterday after the author's tale of the tapes showed the former prime minister savaging opponents and allies alike.|
'I was reckless in talking with Peter C. Newman,' " Mr. Lavoie quoted Mr. Mulroney as saying. " 'This was my mistake and I'm going to have to live with it."
"Brian Mulroney is a very colourful, entertaining man in a conversation that says things . . . because they're entertaining," Mr. Lavoie said. "For a man like this to tape him without his knowledge and use it this way is nothing short of betrayal. . . . He's quite devastated."
