Hunter, Robert

Journalist, Environmentalist, Novelist, Writer, now deceased. Hunter’s rare distinction was that he managed to taste most of both the right and wrong things that presented themselves to an intelligent, politically liberal/left white male during the cultural smorgasbord of the last quarter of the 20th Century, and he survived relatively sane and phobia-free into the 21st. A puritanical NDP smear campaign sunk his attempt to win the Toronto Beaches provincial riding in a recent by-election. He’d have made a very, very interesting Minister of Environment.
