TORONTO, March 30, 2013 /CNW/ - "Peter Kormos was a legend in politics,
and a champion for his fellow Wellanders, and the people of Niagara.
New Democrats, and Ontarians across the province, have lost a giant
today and I've lost a mentor and friend.
"Peter earned the respect of everyone he met regardless of political
stripe. He never minced words and he never put on airs. Peter treated
everyone equally whether he was speaking with eloquence on the floor of
the Legislature, or shooting the breeze with his friends at the Welland
market. Peter Kormos was the genuine article and truly one of a kind.
He made a difference in people's lives and left behind a pair of cowboy
boots that will never be filled.
"He will be missed. Our thoughts are with his mother, siblings and the
many friends and allies who will carry on his work."
