Mr. Speaker, I rise today on a very sad note on the passing of one of my councillors, Dave McComb.
I still call him my councillor even after being away from the mayor's chair for four months in this House.
Perhaps I can best sum up Dave's accomplishments and his contributions to my community by saying that he gave to politics, as he gave to play and to any other purpose he pursued, a warm integrity, a graciousness of spirit, a kindling touch which enriched all things he did for the lives of the people in our community.
He proved, and that proof is much needed, that all communities need vital individuals and all individuals are most vital when they serve their communities.
I am sure that members will join with me in offering his wife, Nancy, and his family our heartfelt condolences as they are bereaved by his death.
