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.
