Former New Democrat M-P Paul Dewar has sent an open letter revealing his brain cancer is terminal.
Dewar first announced in February that he was undergoing treatment for a brain tumour, and now says he has the same type of cancer that killed the Tragically Hip’s lead singer Gord Downie. Dewar says his cancer diagnosis has given him a new determination to support young people. Dewar represented the federal riding of Ottawa-Centre for the NDP for many years. (The Canadian Press)
