He always wrote very well, and expressed his opinion thoughtfully, even if you disagreed with him. Never forgot that pic with him in the background as Jack Ruby was shot.

He was one of the most respected voices in Canadian Journalism. He was a rare breed that actually made a difference during his time.

I agree with all the above comments.

I didn't always agree with him, but his columns were always a good read and he backed up his points thoughtfully and logically.

RIP, Peter.

Wasn't Lee Harvey Oswald the one that was shot (Jack Ruby being the shooter)?

Yes, Jack Ruby is shooting Lee Harvey Oswald here.

Jack Ruby soon after died of lung cancer.
