Cullen reacts to passing of Jim Flaherty

Former federal finance minister Jim Flaherty has died.

He passed away Thursday morning at this home in Ottawa.

Skeena-Bulkley NDP MP Nathan Cullen was shocked by the news.

“I’m in a bit of disbelief actually I’m sad because this was a very decent man. He was absolutely honourable. I’m shocked in the sense that I just spoke with him a few weeks ago.”

Out of respect for Flaherty, Cullen says all debate in the House of Commons has been suspended for the day.

Flaherty was 64-years-old. No word yet on the cause of death.
