Hon. Gordon Dirks, B. Ed., M. Ed., MLA
Minister of Education,
Progressive Conservative, Calgary-Elbow
As you know a huge part of being elected to any office civically, provincially & federally is to meet with constituents & speak on constituency matters/current events/emergencies etc. in the constituency, or in a constituency office itself. Megan Leslie, MP does just that here when she shows her Halifax constituents & political science students a touch of class in comments about the late Hon. Jim Flaherty, PC, former Minister Of Finance & Conservative MP for Whitby-Oshawa. Megan shows that just b/c a political rival dies it doesn't mean you cannot have been a friend to them in life & honour their memory by being gracious to their colleagues, family, & friends in death.
"My heart goes out to the family of Jim Flaherty, & all my Conservative colleagues. Know that there is love & support around you."
Number CLXXIV (174),
