    Not an NDPer, but for some reason, only politicians I have met are Bob Rae and Alexa McDonough. Neither at political events.

    Spoke to Gary Player once at a promotional event in Montreal. Many years later bumped into Ernie Els - he took time to have a chat with us. He was in his shorts and flip-flops, no entourage or security and driving a tiny car. Great guy.

    As I mentioned, I met George Chuvalo after he had spent a day in the city and had stopped at a friend's restaurant for a pizza.

    I was invited to his table by his friend, and remember that he was quiet and reserved.

    A couple of days later, I watched a local Rogers cablecast that showed Chuvalo had given a "talk" at the local high school.

    He talked about his life and the tragedies in his family. He gave the most impassioned talk I have ever heard to the kids.

    You could hear a pin drop in the auditorium. He had the kids full attention and there was some tears flowing by the end.

    I wondered....how could a man who could hold an auditorium full of teenagers spell bound, lose his own family to drugs.

    I gained a lot of respect for "The Champ" after watching that.

    I also met Roger Moore. That's Bond, James Bond. We shared a hotel elevator in Rio de Janeiro almost 20 years go.

    And I met Li Ka-Shing (who owns Husky Oil amongst other things and is the richest man in Hong Kong). Also close to 20 years ago. I also met several members of his family.

    I met William Macy this year and he is a very nice guy. I also met Richard Dean Anderson this year and over the years. Years ago I met the British Bulldogs and Randy Savage along with Elizabeth from the WWE.
