I appeared before Paul on many occasions when I was a young lawyer. He was a terrific arbitrator who was fair and just. Through his decisions, he contributed a wealth of wisdom to the labour relations community. My deepest sympathy to Paul’s family, he was a wonderful man and he will be missed by all those who knew him.
