For Immediate Release
The disability community in Canada has lost a true champion with the death of the Hon. Jim Flaherty. CCD extends our condolences to his family. As one of Canada’s longest serving Ministers of Finance Jim Flaherty never forgot or ignored the needs of Canadians with disabilities. Even during the most difficult of economic times in 2008, Minister Flaherty kept disability issues on the agenda and he continued to move forward initiatives that would address the disproportionate poverty of Canadians with disabilities. He will be missed in our community. He made a difference.
