My name is Brian Peckford, born in Newfoundland and Labrador in 1942, 7 years before the place became the 10th Province of Canada. Graduated from Memorial Memorial in 1966. Taught high school in Springdale , NL, and then entered politics in 1972. Became. A Minister of the Crown in 1974, and Premier in 1979. Served for 10 years as Premier until I retired in 1989. My wife Carol and I ran a Consulting business serving clients nationally and internationally from 1989 until 2001 when I retired. We live in Parksville, B.C.
I Wrote two books : ‘The Past In The Present ‘ in 1983 and ‘Some Day The Sun Will Shine And Have Not Will Be No More ‘ , this second one making the Toronto Globe and Mail ‘s best seller list in the fall of 2012 when the book was published.
As most people who know me are aware, I hold opinions. Often strong opinions . However, I do like to research and and seek out the facts. My father called me ‘ digger’ for that reason I suspect.
This will be a wide ranging blog going where ever the urge dictates. I will try and mix it up ; especially referring to people and books that I particularly enjoy.
Hope you enjoy and visit often.
