Last night, former Reform and Independent MP Chuck Cadman lost his battle with cancer. MP Cadman fought hard for what he believed including reforming the young offenders act and for victims rights.
Although many partisan Conservatives will have sour remembrance of Cadman’s last vote, I believe that he held onto his integrity during that vote that saved those that had none. Still a Reformer, he gave his reason for voting to sustain the government: it was what his constituents wanted. As Conservatives, it was not the outcome that we had hoped for, but as democratic reformers, we understood.
Rest in peace, Mr. Cadman.
