BDC Chairman, Samuel L. Duboc and President and CEO, Jean-René Halde released the following statement on the death of Jim Flaherty
MONTREAL, April 11, 2014–“It is with sadness that we learned of the passing of former Finance Minister, the Honourable Jim Flaherty.
Jim was a great Canadian who loved this country. During his many years of public service, he always served with both distinction and integrity.
As one of Canada’s finest and longest serving Finance Ministers, Jim was an authentic man, able to gain the support and even friendship of his political foes. He will be remembered for his enduring commitment to public service and his steady hand during the global financial and economic crisis.
Canadians from coast to coast to coast will be forever indebted to him for his loyal service, leadership and dedication.
On behalf of everyone at BDC, we would like to extend our most sincere condolences to his wife Christine and their three sons in this difficult time.”
