National Film Board of Canada (NFB) commissioner Claude Jolicoeur spoke of Grant Munro to Fred Lanigan of the Toronto Globe and Mail. “Grant Munro was a Canadian animation legend…. part of the first generation of young animators that Norman McLaren hired, trained and worked with, as the NFB was starting up in the early 1940s.” . Langan continued writing that when McLaren was visiting the Ontario College of Art on a recruitment tour of art schools for his animation group at the NFB, Group of Seven member Franklin Carmichael “insisted he meet Grant Munro.”  Quoting a colleague of Munro’s in McLaren’s animation department, “Norman saw something in Grant, and he went on to be his greatest collaborator.”
