I have just learned of Bill's untimely passing and as a former media colleague of Bill's at the Alberta Legislature, I can only say the world has lost a very kind and caring man. Bill always made journalism seem so easy. When I first met Bill he was with the Medicine Hat News and I was covering the Alberta Legislature for ITV News. The (Lougheed) years covering the Alberta Leg were great. The Press Gallery was comprised of such talented, smart journalists. I am blessed to have many wonderful memories of Bill Sass. He was most of all, a real journalist. Bill could write anything--any story, any time. You will be missed Bill but never forgotten. Rest in peace Bill. My deepest sympathies to your family.
