Getting What You Deserve


For 12 years Dale Goldhawk journeyed through the streets of Canada and into the hearts of thousands of Canadians. Written in Goldhawk’s punchy, to-the-point style, this book links his life as a journalist and advocate with those who were his clients. For the first time, he reveals the background battles and adventures he and his team had, as well as the stories of his clients and where they are today. The narrative paints a vivid picture of how working on Canada’s most original advocacy team changed their lives as journalists and Canadians.


"Culled from the thousands of files that he still retains, Goldhawk has compiled an entertaining book filled with the stories of the people who turned to him for assistance."
