And This is why Irwin Cotler Will be Sadly Missed

Over the past 10 years I was lucky enough to frequent many a Liberal event that had Irwin Cotler as a guest speaker. I say lucky because I was always able to take away something from his subtle pearls of wisdom and worldly knowledge.

Today the Honourable Irwin Cotler left me speechless with a short little email note to yours truly. And that, my friends, is exactly why we are all better off with a little more of Irwin Cotler in the world.

Here's what he wrote:

Dear James,
Thank you for your kind words on the occasion of my announcement regarding my future plans. They were very much appreciated.
Irwin Cotler, P.C., O.C.
Member of Parliament – Mount Royal
Thank you for that Mr. Cotler. I look forward to your future achievements.
