Statement by Liberal Leader Bob Rae on the Death of Jim Jordan

Posted on September 18, 2012

TORONTO– Liberal Leader Bob Rae made the following statement today on the death of former Liberal MP Jim Jordan:

“It is with great sadness that we learn of the passing of former Liberal MP Jim Jordan.

An educator by trade, Jim made significant contributions to his community through his work as a teacher, principal and school inspector. Elected in 1988 to represent the riding of Leeds–Grenville, he continued this work, advancing the issues of literacy and post-secondary education, and advocating for persons with disabilities.

On behalf of the Liberal Party of Canada and our Parliamentary caucus, I extend my condolences to his sons David, Bob, Joe, Tom, Mike and Andy, and their families at this difficult time.”
