Stephen Lewis, a former NDP politician, the leader of his party in Ontario between 1970 1978, failed to convince the voters to trust him by awarding him the premiership of the province.  Frustrated, he resigned his seat in 1978.

Lewis is far removed from the culture and faith of his African clients.  It’s no wonder that he is inadequate, and has been a failure in his mission to curb the spread of AIDS in Africa.
