Successful businessman, community leader, and mayor over a thirty-year span, he left an indelible mark on the city of Edmonton. Hawrelak remains a controversial figure today. Some remember the man who led Edmonton through its biggest boom, spearheading many projects that still count as city landmarks. Others see a symbol of the Ukrainian community's evolution within one generation from immigrants to community leaders. Still others remember the mayor who brought embarassment to Edmonton after being forced from office - not once, but twice - under the cloud of political scandal. Documents an important part of Edmonton's history, while chronicling the rise, fall, and rise again of a truly indomitable and complex man." - from back cover.
