Statement by the NDP on the passing of Max Keeping

NDP candidate for Ottawa Centre Paul Dewar made the following statement on the passing of Max Keeping:

“It is with great sadness that I learned today of Max Keeping's passing.

Max Keeping was a trusted voice for our community and a strong advocate for the people of Ottawa, particularly youth.

As a humanitarian, he raised millions of dollars on behalf of charitable organizations including the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario.

His work and his contributions, in journalism and beyond, have left Ottawa and Canada better. He will not be forgotten.”
