Minister Flaherty served our country with great integrity, strength and dedication.
I was honoured to work with him as part of the Government since 2006. Following
the announcement of his passing, it was obvious the impact that Minister Flaherty
had in this country with the responses from all Members of the House of Commons.
I share with you his words spoken less than a month ago:
"We live in the greatest country in the world, and I want Canadians to know that
it has been my honour and my privilege to serve them."
Minister Flaherty was a one-of-a-kind man with his Irish humour and outstanding
My heartfelt condolences go out to his family, his wife, Christine Elliott and their
3 sons. He will be missed.
