Bloc M.P. Dies in Collision - With Update

Bloc Quebecois member Benoit Sauvageau was killed today in a traffic accident around noon.

No matter what your political stripes, this is a terrible tragedy. My heart goes out to the family.

If what is suggested is true, it is an even greater tragedy. God help the family through this difficult time.

Yeah, and he was way too young.

joanne,

this is the kind of post that reminds us all we are neighbours and collegues and fellow humans at the end of the day.

for anyone who emails MP's on a regular basis it would be wise to remove him, its hard for friends or family to get email afterwards...

Joanne (True Blue) said...

Sara, that's a good point. I'm sure his constituency office is on it, but still. Yes, that would be difficult for all concerned.

Sara said...

yah Bev mentioned it to me today, I took him out of mine. I've seen many people cry when the get mail etc.. afterwards and I wouldn't want to put that pain on anyone

Joanne (True Blue) said...

That's very sensitive of you Sara.

I'm sure it will be difficult for all concerned when they get back to Ottawa and see that empty seat.

I wonder how the focus will shift when it's discovered that it's suicide?

If that were true, then I would say it is even more of a tragedy.
