Christopher Hyndman, share your condolences

Christopher Hyndman, co-host of the CBC-TV afternoon lifestyle show Steven and Chris, was found dead in Toronto's east end Monday night. He was 49. 

Along with his on-screen and off-screen partner of 25 years, Steven Sabados, Hyndman hosted CBC's Steven and Chris and was among the first openly gay TV hosts.
