Former Fredericton MP Andy Scott Passes Away

At the age of 58, former MP Andy Scott has passed away after a battle with cancer. Very sad news. He was a very hardworking MP, dedicated to helping the poor and vulnerable. In his post-political career, he played a leading role in establishing the New Brunswick Social Policy Research Network, linking academics and researchers to policy-makers, a commitment to a rigorous policy-making process. You can read more about his work on that initiative here.

I knew Andy Scott myself, had nothing but respect for him. He left us too soon, a great loss. My condolences to his family.
