SHORTLIFFE, Glen Scott Beloved husband and father, dedicated public servant. Born November 12, 1937 in Edmonton, Alberta. Died May 4, 2010 in Ottawa at home. Beloved husband of Sylvie Lauzon. Proud father of Newton (Sharon) and Scott. Much loved by sister Sally (Gil Stelter) of Guelph. Glen was predeceased by his sister Pamela (1948), father James Newton (1981) and mother Hazel (2008). Glen was a proud Canadian and devoted his life to public service. He joined the foreign service in 1962, with which he had many adventures around the world with his first wife, Sylvia and their children. In his later career he served as Deputy Minister of Transport Canada and in various capacities at the Privy Council Office, culminating as Clerk of the Privy Council from July 1, 1992 to March 27, 1994. He was proud to have served three Prime Ministers in this capacity. After retiring from the federal civil service, Glen co-founded Sussex Circle, a company that provides strategic advice to private and public sector organizations. As Special Advisor to the Government of Ontario he prepared a report which led to the creation of an amalgamated City of Ottawa. From 2001 to 2004, he served as the Chair of Hydro Ottawa. Glen always considered public service to be of the highest calling and he was proud of the contributions he made to the people of Canada, the public service and the Prime Ministers he served. He was a great man and will be sorely missed by his friends and family. There will be a private memorial at a later date.
