Peter W. circa 1984

On Oct. 11, 1984, Peter Worthington, fired from the Toronto Sun he co-founded and recently defeated as a Tory candidate in Broadview-Greenwood, was a guest speaker at the Empire Club.

Thanks to the Empire Club and the Internet, his speech can be read verbatim 23 years later. His book, Looking for Trouble, had just been released, Ronald Reagan had been U.S. president for four years and the Soviet Union was still communist.

It is prime Peter, fired at the time by Doug Creighton for commenting on the content of the Sun, talking politics.
