Peter C. Newman: Journalist and Scourge of Canada’s Powerful

From a New York Times obit by Sam Roberts headlined “Peter C. Newman, 94, Journalist and Scourge of Canada’s Powerful, Dies”:

Peter C. Newman, a maverick journalist and historian who skewered the political establishment in Canada while evolving into a fervent nationalist there, his adopted country, to which he had fled as a boy from Nazi-occupied Europe, died in southeast Ontario.

In a long and prolific career, Mr. Newman had stints as editor of the Toronto-based Maclean’s magazine and of The Toronto Star while churning out nearly three dozen books, some delving into the inner sanctums of four Canadian prime ministers, the Canadian-based Bronfman liquor dynasty and the Canadian media mogul Conrad Black.
