John Duffy, RIP

John Duffy and I were on different teams. He was a Martin guy, and I was a Chretien guy.

But he was one of those Martin guys – like Karl Littler, or John Webster – who I respected and liked. I loved listening to John tell tales and tell stories. He was an amazing storyteller.

In that regard, when my Dad died in 2004, the only book on his bedside table was John’s. Not any of my books about politics. John‘s book. I always thought it was better than anything I ever did.

I am shocked at John’s sudden passing. And I offer my sincerest condolences to his wife and children.

He was one of the great ones. He will not be forgotten.

    Fights is the best Canadian pop history book of all time IMHO.
