You are invited to an evening of celebration of Les Pyette’s induction into the Canadian News Hall of Fame and remembrance of the late, great Peter O'Sullivan.

Former Sun colleagues, family and friends are invited to mingle, congratulate Les for being inducted into the Canadian News Hall of Fame and to remember Peter O’Sullivan.

Both men were key players in the rise of the Toronto Sun during the 1970s, 80s and 90s. Their newsroom skills and eye-catching front pages raised the bar for tabloid fare.

If you are not able to attend the P.J. O’Brien gathering, feel free to post comments about Les and Peter here or on the Toronto Sun Family Facebook page.

Les, a newsroom vet from the Soo, and photo legend Boris Spremo will be inducted into the Canadian News Hall of Fame the previous night during a $200-a-plate dinner.
