In Portraits from a Life, Heward Grafftey introduces us to the starchy world of English Montreal of his childhood in the 1930s and 1940s. We meet his parents and his beloved aunt Prudence Heward (member of the Beaver Hall Group of painters). Aside from his family, many friends and mentors influenced his life. He writes of his encounters with Wilder Penfield, Conrad Black, Pierre Elliott Trudeau, Ralph Nader, and his friendship with the novelist Hugh MacLennan. Grafftey''s campaign against highway deaths led to a 1965 meeting with Ralph Nader on Laurier Lapierre''s celebrated TV show, This Hour Has Seven Days. For over thirty years, car safety and the prevention of accidents at home and in the workplace has been one of his priorities, and he has lectured extensively throughout Canada and the United States on the subject. Heward Grafftey is a passionate Canadian who advocates a new constitution to meet the needs of a unified Canada.
