Book Description
Before he walked onto the political stage, Norman Doyle grew up in Avondale, Conception Bay, in a family of nine children. He followed in his fatherís footsteps and made his way to New York City, where he found employment as an ironworker on the site of the World Trade Center. Later, he returned home, where his political aspirations took root. Inspired by the fiery speeches of Brian Peckford, and with the encouragement of the local ironworkers, Norman threw his hat in the ring and was elected to the House of Assembly in 1979. ďNorm,Ē as he is affectionately known in his home province, left provincial politics in 1993 and later joined the House of Commons when he was elected as the Member of Parliament for St. Johnís East in 1997. He was appointed to the Senate of Canada in 2012, the latest of many achievements in a long and illustrious political career.

During his years on Confederation Hill (St. Johnís) and Parliament Hill (Ottawa), Norm worked alongside other political heavyweights in the Progressive Conservative Party, and later the Conservative Party of Canada: Brian Peckford, Gerry Ottenheimer, Bill Marshall, Danny Williams, Loyola Hearn, Peter MacKay, Joe Clark, Jean Charest, and Stephen Harper. In According to Doyle, Senator Norman Doyle gives us a front-row seat to some of the greatest political battles ever fought for province and countryósome which pitted Newfoundland and Labrador against Canada and put him in the difficult position of having to serve two masters at the same time.

About the Author
Norman Doyle was born in Avondale, a small community in Conception Bay about fifty kilometres from St. Johnís. After working in construction and business, he entered into a career spanning nearly three decades in both federal and provincial politics. He was elected to the House of Assembly in Newfoundland and Labrador in 1979 and re-elected in 1982, 1985, and 1989. He served as a cabinet minister in Municipal Affairs, Transportation, and Labour until he left the provincial House in 1993. Norman entered federal politics in 1997 as the Member of Parliament for St. Johnís East. During his twelve years in the House of Commons, he served as the Progressive Conservative Party whip, chair of the national caucus for both the PC Party and Conservative Party, and also chair of the national Immigration committee. He was also elected four times at the federal level, racking up eight back-to-back wins in both federal and provincial politics.

Norman Doyle was appointed to the Senate of Canada in 2012. He is a member of the Internal Economy Budget and Administration Committee and the Transport and Communications Committee.
