Statement from CBA President on the passing of The Right Honourable Brian Mulroney

  • March 01, 2024

The Canadian Bar Association is deeply saddened by the passing of The Right Honourable Brian Mulroney, former Prime Minister of Canada.

An accomplished lawyer and a CBA member, Mr. Mulroney’s life's work has left an indelible mark on the fabric of our nation. His impact on national and international politics has shaped the Canada we know today.

Among these achievements, Mr. Mulroney's international leadership against Apartheid in South Africa convinced the leaders of other major democratic nations to join in this cause, resulting in the collapse of that racist system and the release of Nelson Mandela from imprisonment.

He will be remembered for his devotion to his country, inspiring leadership, commitment to the environment and human rights everywhere.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to his family, friends, and all those touched by his passion and service.
