Along with so many others, I was surprised and saddened to learn of Dean's passing. He was a fine Chief, mentor, colleague, collaborator, and friend. I recall the anticipation that gripped me when I was working for Transport Canada and due to move to Ottawa from Toronto to work for “the legend” himself. Those years were perhaps the most memorable in all the twists and turns of my career. My sincere condolences to Jean, Donald, and Bonnie. He will be greatly missed but very remembered.
