One of Canada’s great entrepreneurial success stories

Harry Steele was born in Musgrave Harbour, an isolated outport on the eastern coast of Newfoundland. He went to university, joined the naval reserve, and became a lieutenant-commander in the Royal Canadian Navy. Harry quit in 1974 — he didn’t like the new green uniforms — and went into business.

Using money he made in the stock market and his wife Catherine’s real estate investments, Harry bought control of struggling Eastern Provincial Airways. He made it a success and sold it to CP Air several years later. Harry was also highly successful with his other investments, which included the trucking and ferry service company Clarke Transport and the radio broadcasting company Newfoundland Capital Corporation.

With a long list of successes, Harry Steele stays true to his roots, living in Gander, Newfoundland.

  • A small-town success story based in Newfoundland
  • The story of one of Canada's most successful entrepreneurs, from humble beginnings in an isolated area of Newfoundland to a highly successful investor
  • Author is a previous host of CBC nightly business news, and has written for The Economist, the Daily Telegraph, the Christian Science Monitor, and the Globe and Mail

Fred Langan is a writer and journalist and was host of the CBC nightly business news. He splits his time between Toronto and Knowlton, Quebec.

This is a fascinating book about a fascinating Canadian. Our nation’s history is built on the shoulders of true characters from across the land, none more interesting than a man born to poverty in the remote outport of Musgrave Harbour, Newfoundland. Harry Steele took a different path than most who were destined to influence the future of this country, and that’s what makes his story so intriguing, and this book so compelling. In The Commander, Fred Langan captures all the moments that make the Steele life journey instrumental in helping understand Newfoundland and Labrador, the Atlantic region and Canada itself. - Peter Mansbridge
