Former Montreal Gazette and Globe and Mail editor-in-chief Norman Webster died Friday morning in the palliative care unit of the Magog Hospital from complications from Parkinson’s disease. He was 80.
Many paid tribute to Webster, calling him one of the finest Canadian journalists of the past several decades.
“He was such a clear writer, not a show-off writer,” said sportswriter Roy MacGregor. “He just wrote with such clarity and honesty. You just had faith in his opinions. You knew they were well thought out and that he had no agenda. He was the perfect columnist.
