Tommy Douglas was a prairie politician who believed in democratic socialism and the crucial role of civil rights. Douglas, a championship boxer and Baptist minister, later exchanged his pulpit for politics, sitting as a federal MP and then serving for 17 years as premier of Saskatchewan, where he introduced the universal health-insurance system that would eventually be adopted across Canada. As leader of the national NDP, he was a staunch advocate of programs such as the Canada Pension Plan.
