Barrie's Peter Robinson is a sports columnist for BarrieToday. He is the author of Hope and Heartbreak in Toronto, his take on living with the disease of being a Leafs fan. He got his start as a sports reporter covering the Barrie Colts in the late 1990s and still thinks it was his most stressful job to date. He's since held various roles for SCOREGolf, NHL Yearbook, Toronto Star Golf Guide, and Prospects Hockey. Peter recently started producing documentaries and will now also be chronicling Barrie's sports scene through his eyes as he sees it
