Not sure what to say?

Saddened and sorry to hear of Michael's passing. He was one of the most honourable and greatest persons to come into my life. We shared so much for so many wonderful years working for him and travelling the globe. His work was endless and will never be forgotten. My condolences to you Margie and family.

During the endless hours working for our country, on occasion, he found time to have the odd game of golf!!

Margie, Our sincere condolences to you & family. Michael was a wonderful man and will be missed by many.

My deepest condolences to Margie and the family.
Michael was an extraordinary man of all seasons; one of the truly 'good guys'.
His contributions and accomplishments place him in the top rank of great Canadians.
I, like so many others, remember acts of concern and compassion when we think of 'Mikey'.
My own favorite was his immediate rush to my side after I broke a leg playing football, and his genuine laughter when I asked him if he had a smoke.
Trite but true,...
