About the Author
Jeff Willerton was born in Winnipeg, MB Canada on May 6, 1964. He served in the Canadian military for eight years, was employed by the Canadian Taxpayers Federation for three and has run for office twelve times in Alberta and Saskatchewan. (No shrinking violet he.)
Since Chapters kicked his book FIX CANADA off the shelf, like the encyclopedia salesmen of old, Jeff has been touring the country selling successive editions door to door. He has sold 85,000 copies, no small feat for a self-published Canadian author.
Who I Am
I'm a high school educated guy who loves his country, likes to play connect the dots and has a passion for promoting better government. Importantly, I'm also the guy who fell into writing a column for three small, north-central Alberta weekly newspapers in the late '90s when a guy could give you the straight goods on controversial issues, be published, and still have a job the next day.
And finally, I'm the guy who collected those columns into a book which I've been revising and updating over the years, leading to what is now the 21st edition of FIX CANADA.
"Some people's stories are worth telling and retelling, and this one is all that and then some."
"Life is full of right hand turns (pg. 8). It's what we do with them that counts. What a message!"
"Big Bang has completely released me from the grip of 'Obamamania.' Thank you Mr. Willerton."
"I'm 90 years old, and I didn't think I'd ever read a book like this. It’s about time someone wrote it!"
