Robert Weaver Remembered

Robert Weaver nourished and championed many outstanding Canadian writers through his work with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. He also published anthologies and was responsible for the creation of the CBC literary awards. Because of Robert Weaver, the CBC was the first venue for the work of many fine Canadian writers back when the CBC believed that presenting the best work of Canadian writers would be appreciated by listeners throughout Canada. It was.

Thank you Mr. Weaver. May you romp in the Elysian fields forever.

You're so right, Diane, he really made the CBC the great haven it is for writers. He'll be missed.
