He also wrote hundreds of articles for Canadian magazines and newspapers on a variety of subjects. He was awarded many honours during his life including being elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada and was awarded the Lorne Pierce medal presented in recognition of his contributions to Canadian literature.
