On the show today an hour of Kierans Camp and Lewis.
They came to be known as the three wise men. Every Tuesday morning off and on between 1983 and 1993, Eric Kierans, Dalton Camp and Stephen Lewis would gather on the radio on the program Morningside with Peter Gzowski to discuss politics. Stephen Lewis has said that those debates were some of the most civilized and engaging conversations of his life. KCL, as it was quickly dubbed, was a must-listen not only for Canadians across the country, but also for the politicians on Parliament Hill.
Eric Kierans had been a Cabinet Minister in Pierre Trudeau's Liberal government, Dalton Camp, a strategist for the Conservative party and Stephen Lewis, leader of the Ontario New Democrat party. The three created radio magic with insight, wit and civility in equal measure.
