Getty is half of the interesting, uniquely Canadian story of Getty and Peter Lougheed, Eskimo players and Alberta premiers. Getty had a longer football career (11 years versus 2) but shorter term at premier (7 years versus 14), but together they started 44 years of Tories ruling the province that ended in 2015. Getty built a political legacy to be remembered for, but was cemented in Eskimo and CFL history long ago.
My condolences to the Getty family.
