Interesting that you mentioned Grant Notley & Larry Shaben in this column. Mr Shaben was on the same plane as Grant Notley when it crashed in High Prairie in 1984, killing Mr Notley & seriously injuring Mr Shaben. A prisoner — Paul Archambault — being transported by an RCMP officer is credited with saving the lives of Mr Shaben, the RCMP, & the other crash survivors.

Mr Shaben’s daughter Carol wrote a book about it, called ‘Into the Abyss’ (Random House, 2012).

Well worth a read.
