Paramedics attempted to revive him and took him to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead shortly after 2 p.m., the sheriff's department said.

No foul play is suspected, the agency said in a written statement.

It will be interesting to see if South Park tributes him in any way.

Saw him at Massey Hall about 6 years ago. Place was 3/4 full. Never been more embarrassed for Toronto in my life. RIP.
