1. Colin Thatcher
Our hockey loving, maple syrup eating neighbors to the north have certainly earned their reputation as unwaveringly polite people. However, not all Canadians are created equal as Liberal politician Colin Thatcher proved back in 1975. That year Thatcher would become a Member of Parliament in Saskatchewan after winning the provincial riding of Thunder Creek but he would quickly show his stripes when support for the Liberal Party waned.
Just two years after winning his seat, Thatcher would jump ship to the Conservative Party. A move that left his wife, JoAnn Wilson, particularly unimpressed with his lack of loyalty and commitment. Thatcher would soon double down on lacking both when he started having a number of extramarital affairs. Inevitably, the couple would get divorced in 1980, with Wilson not only being awarded custody of two of their three children but also pocketing a then record breaking divorce settlement of $1,000,000.
