Our Nation Has Lost A Patriot And A Friend. Jim Flaherty 1949 – 2014

Canada has lost a true patriot. Upon learning of his untimely death, Members of Parliament, embroiled in the thrust and parry of often bitter debate in the House Of Commons, sheathed their swords and asked that Question Period be suspended. They then reflected together in sadness the Nation’s great loss. Their deep sorrow crossed all  party lines. It transcended all party affiliation for in that moment of loss they were of one accord.

The very Honourable Jim Flaherty, dead at age 64.
