Alberta Liberal Leader David Swann released the following statement on the passing of Manmeet Bhullar, MLA for Calgary-Greenway:
“I was deeply shocked and saddened to hear of the death of my colleague Manmeet Bhullar. “I knew Manmeet from the first day he entered the legislature, and always found him to be a passionate, hard-working and devoted servant of his community.
“There can be no doubt the legislature has lost one of our most respected members, and our assembly will feel his absence every day. Although I did not always agree with Manmeet, I never doubted that he was always working for what he thought would make a better Alberta.
“To Manmeet’s family, our province extends its deepest thanks to you for so generously lending him to public life for so many years. Please know that the light of your lives also helped make our whole province brighter.”
It's with much sadness and a heavy heart that we have to tell you all that Alberta Liberal stalwart and champion of many causes, former MLA for Edmonton-Mill Woods Weslyn Mather, has passed away.
Throughout her life Weslyn improved many lives with her involvement in politics, as a teacher and as a social activist. She will always be remembered for the extraordinary work she did throughout her career.
You will always be missed Weslyn.
Rest In Peace.
