I am deeply saddened to hear of Hugh's passing. To his family and loved ones — please accept my sincere condolences for your loss.
I met Hugh in 2011 in my first few weeks of law school. I was fortunate in being paired up with him through the Canadian Bar Association. He was my law mentor, and every other month or so we had the opportunity to meet up on campus for a coffee. We spent hours chatting about the law, the legal profession, politics, traveling, and life in general.
Hugh was very kind in sharing his time with me, and I am grateful to have heard his stories about his career, his family, and his intrepid adventures across the world.
Hugh provided me with much needed guidance throughout my legal education. I carry his insights with me as I embark upon my own career in the law.
Hugh — thank you for your generosity and kindness towards me. We met as strangers but left as friends.
I am very grateful that I had Hugh as a mentor.
