Toronto Sun’s editorial cartoonist Andy Donato will be inducted into the Italian Walk of Fame on May 28 with a special ceremony.
Jimi Bertucci, co-founder of the Italian Walk of Fame, called Donato a Canadian icon.
?He has had a tremendous impact on Canadian culture,? he said. ?We feel really honoured he?s part of our community.?
Donato, a National Newspaper Award winner, said he ?just about fell on the floor? when he heard the news of his induction.
?I?m very proud of my Italian roots,? he said. ?I always have been. It?s just a great honour that they recognize this.?
