I am heartbroken by the death of Donald Cameron. He loved Nova Scotia and during his time in public and private life, Donnie was a man of incredible integrity.
He was Nova Scotia’s 22nd premier and on the first day he sat in the Legislature as Premier, his government introduced Human Rights legislation, which included equal rights for gays and lesbians, making Nova Scotia one of the first places in North America to do so.
Donnie represented Pictou East, as I do now, and he was a mentor to me in many ways. But more than that, he was a treasured friend.
On behalf of the PC Caucus, I extend my heartfelt condolences to his beautiful children, extended family and many friends.
