The celebrated poet wrote many quotable lines, but not the one featured on a newly issued stamp in her honor.

A couple of years ago pennies stopped being legal tender in this country, Canada. Items are still priced to the nearest cent, but when you get to the till your change is averaged up or down to the nearest nickel, if you are paying cash. If you are using a credit card (which almost everyone does), you pay to the exact cent.

Story
Tagline
Writer and Author
Introduction

A Calgary-based author and writer, during the last two decades I have done work for several corporate clients and also for industry and business publications – notably the trade magazines Oilweek and Oilsands Review. Prior to beginning my writing career, I worked for the Canadian Petroleum Association (CPA, a forerunner to the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers) and for Gulf Oil Canada – then part of an integrated global oil company.

British by Birth, I amAmerican by upbringing and Canadian by choice.

My major, 300-year history of the oil sands is scheduled for publication in 2015 by a major university press. My earlier books include Barbecues, Booms and Blogs: Fifty Years of Public Relations in Calgary (2008; co-editor and contributor); Reflections on Communicative Language Teaching (2007); In Balance: An Account of Alberta’s CA Profession (2000); The Richness of Discovery: Amoco’s First Fifty Years in Canada (1998); and The Great Oil Age: The Petroleum Industry in Canada (1993, with Gordon Jaremko and David Finch). I also contributed a five-part series on the “History of the petroleum industry in Canada” to Wikipedia (2006)
