After a brief visit to Canada in 1956, he returned in 1962 and joined the Telegram [Toronto], doing promotional art plus some occasional illustrating and cartooning. When the Telegram collapsed to joined the Sun [Toronto] drawing a daily socio-political cartoon called “Pavlov”. This panel evolved into a humorous cartoon panel about a dog that was given the same name. When Donato was on holidays he did the editorial cartoon.
