Ed Finn: A Journalist's Life on the Left by Ed Finn

ISBN: 9781927099315

Price: CDN$19.95

Book Description
Few Canadians have contributed as much as Ed Finn to creating the society we now take for granted in this country. As a journalist in Newfoundland, he defied both his bosses and premier Joey Smallwood by standing up for striking loggers in the late 1950s. He became the first NDP leader in that province, before joining Tommy Douglas in defending the Medicare system Canadians now take for granted.

Finnís 70-year career included writing for the Montreal Gazette and the Toronto Star, as well as working for the Canadian Union of Public Employees. He served three years on the board of directors of the Bank of Canada, and most recently has been working with the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives.

This book is a history of modern-day Canada from the perspective of an outsider, yet one whose talents led him to positions of influence and the corridors of power.
