Mauril Bélanger dies at the age of 61. Mauril was a long serving Liberal member of Parliament for Ottawa-Vanier. Mauril was suffering from Lou Gehrig’s disease since 2015. Justin Trudeau had announced his friend and colleagues passing yesterday. Justin also stated, “Mauril’s immense contributions to our country will be honoured and remembered. We are all the poorer for his passing. Goodbye my friend.” He left behind a legacy of community service. CBC
I remember seeing a video of Belanger attend a vote in the House of Commons and his speech had really deteriorated. I’m sure his legacy will be remembered.
