He is a broadcaster who used to be on CFRB in the nineties and 2000s. Also, from 1998 until a few years ago he had a television show on CTS.
The emotional, histrionic thing is his normal MO.
He authored a biography on C. S. Lewis as well as one called "Why The Catholics Are Right", even though he originally made his name as Canada's token spokesman for the Christian right. He has also kind of cozied up to Islam in the past.
In the late nineties I saw him on "100 Huntley Street." He gave his testimony which was as follows: He woke one night, couldn't get back to sleep and went downstairs. He was flipping through the channels when he landed on a televangelist. A few weeks later he asked his wife if she noticed anything different about him and she said Michael's language had improved. No repentance or baptism or anything.
He is also Jewish and was raised in a secular Jewish home. He has called for the bombing of Iran in his Toronto Sun column and is very big on Zionism.
