Statement By Premier Dalton McGuinty On The Passing Of David Pecaut

Office of the Premier

Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty today released the following statement regarding the death of David Pecaut:

"I was deeply saddened to hear of the passing of David Pecaut. At the same time, I am grateful for the gift that was his life and work.

David was a man of boundless energy and optimism, who freely gave of himself to improve the city he loved.

Torontonians will remember him for the Luminato Festival, and his leadership at the Toronto City Summit Alliance. They'll recall his love of the arts, his support for youth and for championing Toronto tourism.

For my part, I will remember him for his passion for people, his courage, and his idealism. I will miss his exciting ideas and, above all, his warm friendship.

My thoughts and prayers today are with his family and friends -- especially his wife Helen, and their four daughters Lauren, Amy, Sarah and Becca."
