Edward Rogers, Deputy Chairman, Rogers Communications, on the passing of Paul Robertson:

TORONTO, Sept. 3, 2014 /CNW/ - "Paul was a true visionary who helped shape the Canadian media industry.  Last week, we announced a joint venture with Shaw Media, and it never would have happened without Paul's leadership.  He was a wonderful partner – forward-thinking, honest, and passionate, and will be greatly missed by all those that had the pleasure of knowing him and working with him.  Our thoughts go out to Paul's family and his Shaw Media family during this difficult time."
