Former NDP Paul Dewar passed away on Wednesday, a year after he received his cancer diagnosis. In a statement on Mr. Dewar’s Facebook page, the family posted a note, sharing his message: “I want to say thank you. My whole life was filled with the kindness of the people of Ottawa, but never did I feel the true depth and generosity of your love more than this past year. You were a constant source of comfort and solidarity for me and my family. I am so grateful for all that you have done.”
