From Joe Warmington's column in the Toronto Sun:
"(Les) Pyette knows talent and nurtures it.
"Pop culture has always been his secret weapon.
"Stories on how people are affected by politicians were more interesting to him than the politicians. He likes stories about how a trainer taped up a player’s knee to help him score the winning goal better than a piece on the final score of a game.
"He despises press releases or press conferences but instead loves stories from the street about cops, firefighters, paramedics, the homeless, the heroic or brave.
Mostly, he likes to be first."
