Hon. Percy E. Downe:
Colleagues, deep sadness fell on Parliament Hill today when we heard the news of Gord Brown’s passing. Gord served on the National Security and Intelligence Committee of Parliamentarians, and I can tell you he made a real contribution, without any partisan tensions. Gord cared deeply about the safety and security of Canadians, and he was a very good and decent man who actually earned the title of honourable member of Parliament.
My condolences to his wife, his children, his extended family and, knowing Gord, his many friends.
