Shaughnessy Cohen Prize for Political Writing
for The Longer I'm Prime Minister: Stephen Harper and Canada, 2006 –

Jury Citation

“Veteran political columnist Paul Wells has crafted a fast-paced, romping great read about a Prime Minister who is frequently described by the Parliamentary Press Gallery as dull, plodding, and inscrutable. Though viscerally funny and often biting, this book is never partisan or unfair. Impeccably researched, gorgeously written, and deeply insightful, The Longer I’m Prime Minister is an essential read for all political junkies.” – 2013 Shaughnessy Cohen Prize for Political Writing Jury (Licia Corbella, Jane O’Hara, and Doug Saunders)
