Still waiting on that hockey book

by

A very important detail in John Geddes’ 2006 profile of Ian Davey, Michael Ignatieff’s new chief of staff.

As his father’s son, Davey might be expected to be a classic political operator. But he doesn’t quite fit the mould. He isn’t a lawyer or a lobbyist, but a Toronto TV producer, whose credits include programs like September 1972, a two-hour documentary on the epic Canada-Russia hockey summit series.

So Mr. Ignatieff’s side now has Canada’s winning goaltender and the producer of a documentary on the Summit Series. Surely Mr. Harper will now be compelled to fill out the recent vacancies in his office with Phil Esposito and the ghost of Foster Hewitt.
