Look at that old newsroom picture. A hive of activity!

Re: The Canadian Press is 100

I worked with Jack Tracy very briefly as he neared retirement and I was just starting at the national news agency in the mid-'70s. I remember he always brought his dog Jasper into the office on Saturdays, Jack may have been the last to wear the green visors associated with an earlier time.
