'Greatest mayor we never had,' David Pecaut dies at 54 -

'Greatest mayor we never had,' David Pecaut dies at 54 - "'His heart and passion are with Toronto, and he always finds ways to make things happen,' says the Mayor. 'It was impossible to say 'no' to him because he worked miracles to find common ground where the only answer was 'yes.'' Inspired by Pecaut, more than 6,000 people became involved in Alliance projects, tackling everything from immigrant integration to income security reform to cultivating emerging leaders.

'He taught us all civic responsibility and engagement,' explains Deans. 'I have never met anyone with David's intellectual curiosity, his passion for serving others well and creatively, and his ability to convene people and facilitate solutions that lead to action and change.'"
