Former Canadian Finance Minister Jim Flaherty Dies

Former Canadian finance minister Jim Flaherty passed away Thursday afternoon. He was 64.

Flaherty was discovered with no vital signs at his Ottawa condominium. Multiple reports said he suffered a heart attack.

Canadians were stunned by Flaherty’s sudden resignation a little less than a month ago. Although he had been battling a rare skin condition, Flaherty said at the time that his exit from the public sector was not due to his health.

One of Canada’s longest-tenured finance ministers, Flaherty was widely seen as one of the key figures who helped Canada emerge from the Great Recession as a model economy.

Flaherty is survived by his wife, Ontario MPP Christine Elliott, and his triplet sons, John, Galen and Quinn. “We appreciate he was so well-supported in public life by Canadians from coast to coast,” his family said in a statement.
