A few days ago, I expressed my deep condolences to the family of the Hon. Jim Flaherty whose state funeral will take place tomorrow. Here are the comments I shared last week. "We will all miss Jim Flaherty and our hearts and prayers turn to Christine, their children and his entire family. Jim Flaherty was a great Canadian. He dedicated much of his life to public service and his legacy as the steward of Canada's finances over the past ten years will be lasting. We are all indebted to him."
For those Facebook friends and others posting follow-up questions on today's news: Please note that I am continuing my role at CIBC. I am not a lobbyist, nor will I be lobbying. And I will not receive any additional financial compensation for my newly-announced role with Northern Gateway.
