lincoln alexanderToday Premier Dalton McGuinty released the following statement on the death of the Honourable Lincoln Alexander, former Lieutenant-Governor of Ontario:

I was deeply saddened today to hear of the passing of Lincoln Alexander. We have lost a remarkable Ontarian and a great Canadian.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Lincolns family, especially his wife Marni, son Keith and his family.

Lincoln was a towering man, and his stature matched his influence not just on all those fortunate enough to work with him, but all those who knew him. Indeed, he left an extraordinary legacy, both in his private life and as a public servant.

He broke down barriers. He made Ontario a better place for all of us, the next generation of public servants and citizens.

I am most grateful for all he did to improve the lives of young people and his dedication to strengthening education. Ontarians and indeed, all Canadians, will miss his passion, determination and hard work.
