Stacey began his newspaper career on April 12, 1960 as an apprentice printer at his hometown paper, The Killarney Guide in southwestern Manitoba. From there, he worked in British Columbia (in Golden, Lillooet, Kamloops and Revelstoke) and Alberta (at the Calgary Albertan), then in Saskatchewan (with the Moose Jaw Times-Herald and Fort Qu’Appelle Times as editor and publisher of The Senior, with readers across Canada and beyond). In the early years of his career, Stacey typed his reports of rodeos, pranks, fist fights, fires, awards and celebrations on an old Underwood typewriter. With nothing more than a ‘nose for news’ and a refusal to be turned away, he uncovered several major stories over the course of his 50-year career and helped lead to changes in some political regimes and public policies. He has covered education, politics, parades and accidents, had guns pointed at him and a pie thrown in his face. Clay Stacey now shares some fascinating stories and behind-the-scenes details in his book.
