Ottawa reunion

Day Oners who launched the Ottawa Sun 20 years ago will be gathering for a reunion dinner in the capital city's Little Italy tomorrow night.

John Paton, founding editor-in-chief, is flying in from New York. Toronto Sun columnist Mark Bonokoski, who was the European bureau chief on Day One and became publisher in 1997, will also be there.

Peter Worthington, co-founder of the Toronto Sun and founding editor of the Ottawa Sun has been invited. Hartley Steward, the founding publisher, is in Scotland so can't attend.

Other Ottawa Sun pioneers have also been invited.

It is not the SkyDome party they all attended to celebrate the Toronto Sun's 20th in 1991, but any gathering of Sun vets speaks for the strength of the Toronto Sun Family bond.

As Paton, now chairman and CEO of New York-based impreMedia, says: "As someone who got to the Toronto Sun in '77, I really loved being a Day Oner in Ottawa."
