This release was issued under a previous government.

“It is with a heavy heart that we have learned of the passing of the Member of the Legislative Assembly for Calgary-Greenway, the Honourable Manmeet Bhullar. He was a loyal member of the Progressive Conservative caucus.

“This is a terrible tragedy and our first thoughts are for Mr. Bhullar’s family and loved ones, as well as his constituents, his caucus colleagues, Members of the Legislature, and the people of Alberta.

“Mr. Bhullar worked tirelessly in service of this province. First elected in 2008, he proudly served as Minister of Infrastructure, Minister of Human Services, and Minister of Service Alberta.

“All Albertans should be proud of his significant contributions to public life.

“There will be opportunities to remember his life and work over the coming days and we will do so along with all Albertans.

“We have lost our colleague, Calgary-Greenway has lost a friend and effective voice in the legislature, and most of all, we have all lost a passionate advocate for Alberta.”
