New Democrats Mourn the Loss of Peter Kormos: Statement from Ontario NDP Leader Andrea Horwath

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."
