Statement in the House on the late Nancy MacLean

Posted on October 8, 2014

Wednesday, October 7, 2014, it was my distinct pleasure to rise in the House of Commons to pay tribute to an esteemed Islander and friend.  Please select below to see the video.

SO31-NancyMacLean

The following is the transcript of my statement in the House:

Mr. Speaker, I rise to pay tribute to Nancy MacLean, who passed away in Vancouver due to unexpected complications following surgery.

Nancy, born on P.E.I., grew up in North Wiltshire and graduated from UPEI with a BA in English and psychology. She so loved to write. She worked in three fields. They were as writer and editor for the entertainment and family pages in the Charlottetown Patriot; in the Privy Council Office of Prime Minister Trudeau, leaving for the west coast due to the pull of the sea; and in community work with seniors on the west coast.

Quite young, she was struck down with severely crippling rheumatoid arthritis, forcing her to retire. No stranger to surgery, facing it at least seven times, and certainly no stranger to the pain and depressing impact of arthritis, she never complained. Instead, she showed her kind heart and humour. Everyone who knew her admired her courage. She showed that courage and bravery through her disability.

Nancy loved both P.E.I. and B.C., but her heart belonged to P.E.I. Our condolences go to her brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews.
