The Life of City Builder David Pecaut

David Pecaut had a unique talent when it came to city-building -- his gift for teamwork, and for inspiring people with his vision of what was possible. Now, his wife Helen Burstyn has written a memoir about her husband. Tonight, there's a launch party for the book, Eleven out of Ten: the Life and Work of David Pecaut. Helen Burstyn met the CBC's Mary Wiens at David Pecaut Square to talk about the man for whom one of Toronto's busiest civic squares was named. Listen audio (runs 6:01)
