Doucette eventually left the fishery and got in the life insurance business. He has been retired for about a decade. He also is a former Argyle municipal councillor.

Doucette’s new book is 271 pages and will be available at various locations, including Coles in Yarmouth, Spencer’s in Shelburne, Wilson’s Home Hardware in Barrington, Pharmasave and the Red Cap in West Pubnico, Clarence’s Shopping Mart in Saulnierville and Bainton’s in Annapolis Royal.
