Peter was the host of the weeknight public affairs TV show 7 on 6 when I joined as a story editor in 1968. A couple years later I joined him as co-host. What an exciting era it was for news in Montreal! We had a talented and eclectic staff — Nick Auf der Maur, Les Nirenberg, Mark Phillips, Paul Wright, Andrew Simon and others — but while he was there, Peter was the key figure, charismatic on camera and a great interviewer. Regrettably, he left in about 1972 (replaced by Pierre Pascau and Brian Stewart in his TV debut). Peter once gave me a ride on his motorcycle. He was a fine journalist and a good colleague, part of an era I remember with great fondness. My sympathies are extended to his family.
