PKP fired Santa

Link to blog updated

PKP once fired Santa Claus.

That's the inside scoop from former Toronto Sun editor John Downing in his latest Downing's Views blog titled "I Got Fired as Santa."

Downing recalls how, at six feet tall, weighing 300 pounds and bearded, he was often called upon to be Santa, including appearances at Toronto Sun Christmas gatherings. the Ex etc.

His Santa adventures, including how PKP came to fire him as Santa in a ride up the elevator at 333 soon after buying Sun Media, are a hoot.

Downing, a Day Oner who not so affectionately calls PKP Pete, also recalls eventful and sometimes painful Santa sessions at the Ex and other gigs.

Merry Christmas Santa.
