Well Kim Campbell was Prime Minister for all of 4 months so I don't know why that should come as much of a surprise.
And frankly, coming from a Canadian, who cares about who our PMs are? They wield little international influence and abide over a peaceful quiet sparsely populated country. I'm always quite surprised when someone from outside of Canada has any knowledge of Canadian politics.
About the only one who accomplished anything of note on an international stage is Pearson, and as much as I would like more people to know about him and his contributions, I'm not surprised the majority do not.
