Rangley ... your list is incomplete even on the names of recent prime ministers, as it misses some of the intervening ones. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Canadian_Prime_Ministers for a complete list. --Ogopogo 23:15, 18 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Pogo: you expect accuracy?? heh.. Rang: You might consider a category 'Prime Ministers of Canada', and moving the non-list text of this page to Category:Prime Ministers of Canada --Splaka 23:24, 18 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Well, the thing is that none of those other people have anyhting written on them, so I only added those with things currently. I can start new articles, but then again anyone can. Its not hard to write and I invite anyone to help out...Rangeley 23:27, 18 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Actually, it's not that easy to write entertaining articles on many of the former PMs unless you know about the particular PM. Not that you'd do it, but I'd hate to see people writing random drivel articles just to create an article on every PM. --Ogopogo 23:38, 18 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Indeed, which creates a problem for the older ones. I do know quite a bit about Mulroney on, but before that would require some research. Hence the usage of Red Green. edit: If you intend to keep linking to 'historically accurate' people and changing my links, then atleast write articles on them so they arent dead links. Rangeley 23:46, 18 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Dead links are no problem for me. Lester Pearson and Joe Clark are easy enough articles to write up in a witty fashion for someone sometime. If you don't want dead links, I'll delete the succession boxes from the Pierre article. --Ogopogo 23:50, 18 Oct 2005 (UTC)

No, I will simply write articles if you dont want to. Rangeley 23:51, 18 Oct 2005 (UTC)

I'd gladly write one paragraph articles on the PMs (like you just did for Joe Clark) but lately the mods have been strict and deleting short articles or MTU-tagging them. Splaka ... will you let us write one-paragraph articles on the prime ministers? --Ogopogo 00:01, 19 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Well, paragraphs are a nice place to start. We can both add some paragraphs to some, like early life, later life, etc. Or if they were something other then Prime Minister as well. Rangeley 00:06, 19 Oct 2005 (UTC)

If you plan to expand them (within say two weeks), use {{construction}}, If they will never grow beyond one paragraph (two or four sentences), they should be Undictionary:. What you might do is put the paragraph in this article as ===Headers=== below the list, and use #local links. When/if they grow, they can be moved to their own page and relinkified. P.S.: Secret machinations are in effect in the background. Two people besides me on this talk page might be in line for promotion this month. Stay tuned. Also: pad your contribs with vandal reverts, categories, submissions to vfd/qvfd, and comments in the village dump, heh heh. --Splaka 00:10, 19 Oct 2005 (UTC)
(Edit conflict with Splaka, might as well post it anyway.) If you plan on keeping the info for each PM to a paragraph, why not just incorporate them into this article (or Prime Ministers of Canada)? If you think some could have longer articles, though, then go ahead and start new pages for them and mark 'em with whatever we use these days to mark articles that need to be longer.
{{expand}}, that's the one. --—rc (t) 00:19, 19 Oct 2005 (UTC)

I'll write a few on the ones who aren't there, if you guys don't mind.Habby 19:12, 11 Nov 2005 (UTC)

Habby ... Would you mind holding off on William Lyon Mackenzie King though? I had some ideas rolling in my head on that one for some time already. --Ogopogo 19:26, 11 Nov 2005 (UTC)

You got it, I'll start from the more modern ones and work back...Habby 19:29, 11 Nov 2005 (UTC)
