Staying in the Game by Sydney Sharpe
Book DescriptionPeter C. Newman called him "the Totem of the Titans." From a small Prairie town, Daryl K. "Doc" Seaman became an icon of Canadian business and hockey. He is one of the last of a breed of postwar entrepreneurs and sportsmen who forged modern Canada, striking deals on a handshake and always keeping their word. After flying 82 combat missions during the Second World War, Doc Seaman worked in the oil industry with his brothers, turning a small Alberta drilling business into a global giant, Bow Valley Industries. Later, he led a group that brought the Atlanta Flames to Calgary. Still a Flames co-owner, he helped reshape Hockey Canada and restore Canadas glory in international hockey. Doc Seamans life is a remarkable saga of courage, resolve, generosity, and success. It ultimately leaves us not only with a deep appreciation of one iconic Canadian but also with a wider understanding of our country.

When Alberta conservatism came to an end after forty-three years with a stunning left-wing victory in 2015, it was clear that Rachel Notley and the NDP had achieved the impossible. But was this victory so unprecedented? Sydney Sharpe and Don Braid explore the NDP breakthrough and how it affected the later federal election.
