Geez...David Spence is the reason I picked up the extra channel so I could watch him in Saskatoon. I've been a big fan for many years and will miss his humour and accurate forecast. A true legend in every way. Thank You David.....Hope it was your decision to retire and not Bell's. Looks like this fall I'll be saying Bye Bye to CFCN/CTV.

Publicly, he's saying it's his choice, that after his bout of cancer a few years back, he wants to enjoy life, something that can't be faulted.

Knowing Bell, I would not be surprised one bit if he had been given a choice to work to an end date and "retire", as opposed to being waltzed into a dank meeting room with some heartless HR flunkies on a Tuesday afternoon and then being escorted out of the building after being "downsized".

Regardless of how the decision was made, Spence has had a great career and deserves all the best in his retirement.
