Statement from Kevin Falcon, Former Deputy Premier and Minister of Finance

“I was terribly saddened to hear of the sudden passing of a great Canadian, the Honourable Jim Flaherty. Having worked closely with Jim while Minister of Finance and through several cabinet portfolios, I can personally attest to his love of Canada and his commitment to the democratic process. During a recent private dinner with Jim while he last visited Vancouver on business, I could see his continued dedication and commitment, in spite of the burden of dealing with a very difficult chronic illness.”

“He was a great supporter of our Province and country and worked tirelessly to protect Canada’s interests during some of the darkest hours in global financial history. I extend my sincere condolences to his wife Christine and their three boys, John, Galen and Quinn.”
