9781460285244: Polar Bears and Other Scares

Polar Bears and Other Scares is the memoir of Ron Truman, who began freelance writing when bored with his day job. He parlayed his writing ability into a 40-year communications career. Seeking excitement and novelty, he welcomed hazards and avoided humdrum. For The Globe and Mail he wrote about adventure sports, hunting, guns, skiing, women, children, and underwater archaeology. For Landmarks, a geographic magazine, he tagged polar bears, hunted moose, and hand-fed snapping turtles. He guided foreign journalists on Canadian adventures. The memoir contains thrilling anecdotes and humorous tales. Terrorism, nukes and plagues entered his writing life. As Provincial Director of Emergency Information he participated in exercises simulating nuclear accidents and international terrorism. A crisis communicator, he was in the thick of 9-11 and SARS. Drawn into the energy sector as speechwriter for Ontario energy ministers, he eventually became Director of Project Development for the world's largest solar farm. The memoir is an insider's perspective on newsworthy events. One of the first writers to popularize stroke information, his memoir covers his own devastating heart failure and catastrophic strokes. One stroke almost killed him. A blood clot had to be vacuumed out of his brain to save his life. His experience writing for the Heart and Stroke Foundation brings an edge of compelling credibility to his tale of personal cardiovascular calamities. The author's work is in a collection "of national and historic importance" held by the Ontario Provincial Archives and Public Archives of Canada. This book is part of the backstory.
