I thank Brian Mulroney for bringing environmental problems to surface and his generosity in funding a project I worked on to help eliminate

To the Mulroney Family -


How swiftly the sands of time
drift on towards eternity;
and too soon our loved one
has reached that new horizon
far beyond our earthly sight.
Still, like a haunting melody,
he will gently tiptoe back
in our laughter, in our tears.

And in loving memories
we shall celebrate
the seasons of his life.
Now, ever-grateful
for each golden moment,
in certainty, we know
we’ll meet again . . .

Sincere sympathy,
Norma Clare

Chère famille Mulroney, je vous offre mes plus sincères condoléances. Étant militaire pendant que Brian était premier ministre, je me suis toujours senti appuyé par lui ainsi que par son entourage. Ses convictions, son franc-parler et approche caritative envers les Forces canadiennes ont certes grandement mérité mon respect et ma confiance. Bref, j'étais fier de servir le Canada et le gouvernement en place sous sa gouverne et son leadership.

Brian Mulroney was the Canadian leader during most of my childhood and adolescence - exactly in the timeframe when I became aware of the international political environment. He was a constant factor in that landscape, at a time when politics seemed a little less antagonistic than today. May he rest in peace.

Merci M. Mulroney pour tout ce que vous avez fait pour le Canada. Pour votre habileté, votre talent à le représenter l'International et à négocier pour son bien. Merci d'avoir tenté de réparer l'affront fait au Québec en 1982, vous êtes le seul qui en avez eu le courage mais aussi qui en avait le désir et la capacité. Des personnes de votre trempe, il en manque cruellement dans le paysage politique du Canada. Et comme vous devez déjà manquer à votre famille. Mes sympathies aux proches.

Deepest condolences to the Mulroney family. We had always known Brian as our 18th Prime Minister of Canada; however, in the last three weeks we have had a very personal glimpse of the man- a thoughtful, heartwarming & humorous human being.

The funeral service was sublime and so very fitting - right down to Elizabeth and Brian signing at the end. Who knew how much he loved to sing?

May his wonderful memories and his beautiful singing voice help you heal during this time.

In the early 1990’s our young family visited Ottawa. After a long day of touring, we made our way to Parliament Hill. Brian Mulroney was walking into the building with a few aides. What a coincidence! We approached tentatively and he warmly welcomed us with open arms. He was so good to our children. We have a lovely picture, and will never forget. Rest in peace, friend!

I pray for the Right Honourable Brian Mulroney to rest in peace and honor his accomplishments. He shaped Canada by deregulating foreign investment, cutting corporate tax to 28% and marginal income tax to 29%. He funded tax cuts with GST, welfare cuts, and privatization, supported by most economists. Despite criticism, he prioritized what was right for the country, ensuring fairness in taxation.

How moving it was to hear his voice at the end. I know my dad would be sad to have learned of Prime Minister Mulroney's passing and I send my condolences to his family, friends and the entire country. May his memory be a blessing.

His dedication and his service to Canada was, without a doubt, exemplary. In today’s powerfully evocative and very poignant tribute so many of us, who only knew him as our country’s 18th Prime Minister, got a glimpse of his great humanity as not only a devoted husband, father, and grandfather but also as a stalwart and faithful friend to so many. Thank you for allowing us to share these moments with you. I offer my deepest condolences to the family. RIP Mr. Mulroney.

In 2019, while I was President of St Patrick’s Society of Montreal, Mr. Mulroney was our Guest Speaker. He drew one of the largest crowds in the 185 year history of the Society. I was extremely nervous, having to speak to such a large audience, but Mr Mulroney was very kind and reassuring. After delivering my speech, he was the first to congratulate me saying “congratulations young lady, not many people realize how difficult that is to do.” He went on to deliver a spectacular speech. RIP

I met Mr. Mulroney in the late 1980s at a First Minister’s conference in Toronto at which I was working. He was so very charming and funny and in the less than one minute that we talked he made me feel like a good friend. I cannot fathom how his family is dealing with this loss of such a great Canadian and warm and loving father and husband. My condolences and love to you all. Rest in peace Mr. Mulroney.

Thank you Prime Minister Mulroney for formally apologizing to Japanese Canadians in 1988 for the wrongs the Canadian government committed against them during the Second World War. The apology meant a lot to my mother, who was a young girl during WW2, and whose family was forever changed because of the Internment. If she were here today (died 2010) she would join all Canadians in saying “thank you”. He was an honourable man; my deepest condolences to his family.

It was my privilege to work in Mr. Mulroney's office as legislative advisor from 1990-1992. These were extremely busy and challenging times. I always knew, every moment, that the PM would guide us forward with his great wisdom, care and enthusiasm for all of Canada and the world. And he did.

You kindly took the time to speak with my friends and myself, when we identified ourselves as Torontonians.
