Summary
The only child of two alcoholics, Oliver spent his entire youth in the homes of strangers. A summer job with the local CBC station launched his broadcasting career, taking him from Prince Rupert, B.C. to Ottawa, Washington, and Central America, and eventually to chief parliamentary correspondent for CTV News. Oliver also pursued a personal passion for Canada's wilderness rivers, paddling some of the remotest waters in Canada with political and media figures such as Tim Kotcheff and Pierre Trudeau. Most surprising is the revelation that this comfortable television presenter has been legally blind for a decade. Includes strong language. c2011
