From The Globe's Michael Valpy's 2002 interview with Harper's essayist Lapham:
"Speaking of which, how do you get along with Brian Mulroney?" I ask. Lapham's son Andrew is married to the former prime minister's daughter Caroline.

"I find him a very interesting guy," Lapham says. "I find him a very engaging, informed, generous man. I had lunch recently with him and said to him, 'Brian, explain Canada to me.' "
