  10. I was sorry to read that Sam had passed away. I have very fond memories of him when we were in Bow Valley Toastmasters. Our paths crossed several times during my political career. I always looked forward to meeting him. He had a strong handshake and a big smile. He was a perfect gentleman. Please accept my sincerest condolences.
