Colombo named Humanist of the Year

On May 10, the Humanist Association of Toronto named John Robert Colombo Humanist of the Year. The Toronto writer and public intellectual gave an amusing and informative acceptance address, without notes, revealing an encyclopedic mind combined with the choice of words to keep an audience amused and enlightened.

The address was so good that I make no attempt to summarize it, but instead with the permission of John Robert and Donna Andersen who recorded the speech, offer it to you in its entirety.

Please give yourself time to listen to it all. It lasts 53 minutes. You won’t regret it!
