Tonight, Peter Mansbridge announced that after thirty years, he’ll be stepping down from anchoring The National. But fret not, we’ll have almost a whole year to say goodbye to Canada’s most well-known anchor. He’ll be stepping down next year on Canada Day, which also marks Canada’s 150th birthday.
Grab some tissues and watch his announcement for yourself:
