Len re Peter W.

Len Fortune, the Toronto Sun's former longtime graphics master, responds to TSF's call for honourary Senator status for Peter Worthington:

"Toronto's Riverdale riding missed the boat in the '80s when it twice had the opportunity of electing Peter to the Hill.

"Peter's no nonsense, take no prisoners approach was, and is, still needed in Ottawa, but the NDP's Lynn MacDonald held on to the riding in two hard-fought elections. Peter returned to writing after the last defeat - not that he ever left.

"It was a loss for all Canadians. Peter - I have no doubt - would have been an outstanding parliamentarian and definitely Cabinet material.

"An honourary Senator nod would be a nice gesture, but I have a feeling Peter has some thoughts on the worthiness of the Senate."

Thank you for the e-mail, Len.
