David Akin has a nice post about Senator Michael Duffy’s maiden speech in the Senate. As might have been expected, Senator Duffy—has a nice ring, eh—acquitted himself rather well, mixing humour with serious commentary.
During his long career as one of Canada’s premier journalists, Senator Duffy demonstrated an abundance of intelligence, decency and integrity—journalistic and personal. In 1994, he was inducted into the Canadian Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame.
As a regular watcher of his Mike Duffy Live television show on CTV Newsnet, I miss seeing Mike on a regular basis. Though I have to say that Tom Clark shows early promise in his Power Play with Tom Clark replacement program.
