Like a Rock Signing at Surrey Chapters

Posted: Friday, March 14, 2008

Like a Rock author Tom Zytaruk will sign copies his new book at Chapters Strawberry Hill (12101, 72nd Avenue, Suite 100) in Surrey on Saturday, March 22 at 1pm.

Before his political life, Surrey Independent MP, Chuck Cadman was regarded by his Surrey BC neighbours as a bit of a couch potato. Despite the ponytail left over from his days as a rock musician, he had settled into a nine-to-five job and seemed content to pay down the mortgage, watch TV, drink a few beers and enjoy family life.

Then, on October 17, 1992 the Cadman’s beloved sixteen-year-old son Jesse was
senselessly murdered by a teenage delinquent, and Chuck’s laid-back life changed forever. Overnight, the quiet homebody was transformed into an inspired public advocate for stricter treatment of violent offenders and more compassionate treatment of victims of crime. He became a rallying figure for people across Canada growing impatient with tolerant attitudes toward youth crime, and in 1997 the people of Surrey North elected him as their Member of Parliament.

Like a Rock is a moving account of an ordinary man who was faced with an extraordinary challenge and not only rose to the occasion, but did so in a way that set an example for all people.
