Roy McMurtry still remembers the day the Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan hand-delivered a letter to his office in 1977.

The former provincial attorney general and chief justice of the Supreme Court of Ontario, now 86, recounted the story to CBC Toronto's Dwight Drummond as Black History Month began.

He said the threat didn't dampen his desire to work for people from various backgrounds.
