So very many better writers than I have already written such interesting and thoughtful pieces on the death of Ted Rogers. Mark Goldberg, Mark Evans, and of course, Macleans has a huge, huge section dedicated to Mr Rogers. (I didn’t know him to call him Ted).
Whether you loved him or cursed him, he really was one of the most significant driving forces in Canadian Telecommuncations. He pushed his competitors, the government and his own teams into creating, investing and innovating the Canadian communications industry. Really, no one in Canada has not been touched by Ted Rogers in one way or another. There’s few people who can be described in such a manner. Sigh.
Thanks Mr Rogers.
