Jean statement on the passing of Jim Hillyer
Today, Wildrose Leader Brian Jean released the following statement on the passing of Jim Hillyer, Conservative MP for Medicine Hat-Cardston-Warner:
“I am incredibly saddened today to hear of the sudden and tragic passing of our friend Jim.
“Jim was a man who lived his life with passion and dedication to public service – an individual who lived faithfully and honourably to his family and friends.
“There’s no question of his perseverance after earlier in his life overcoming a battle with leukemia. I was honoured to serve for several years with him in Ottawa and he will be deeply missed.
“Above all else, Jim should be remembered as a man of strong faith, a loving father and husband. I pray comfort for his family, and on behalf of the Wildrose, offer our deepest condolences.”
