"I can scarce believe it's finally happening," writes Lloyd Robertson in an open letter posted to CTV's website. Neither can many Canadians, if the 700-plus messages posted on the station's online tribute page And that's the kind of life it's been — a play on his signature sign-off, of course, but also a reference to the one-hour retrospective directed by Robertson's daughter set to air Sept. 1 before his final broadcast. In addition to that tribute, you can also read journalistic musings on the significance of Robertson's 41-year on-air reign in the Toronto Star and the National Post, in which Robertson tells the interviewer "You can't go on forever", plus check out his recent acceptance speech for a very special Gemini, the Gordon Sinclair Award. And, if you're still really missing Robertson come Sept. 2nd, you can make a trip to Stratford. Robertson's hometown recently announced plans to create a garden named after him in front of city hall.
