Today, Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound MPP Rick Byers issued the following statement in response to yesterday’s passing of former MPP Bill Murdoch.
“Bill Murdoch was an extraordinarily active and dedicated member of our Grey Bruce community.
Whether it was his service as municipal councillor and Grey County Warden, board member of the Association of Municipalities of Ontario, his terms as MPP for Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound from 1990 to 2011, or his extensive involvement in so many important local organizations and activities, he always left his mark. Bill has left a great legacy to our community, that includes supporting local music, helping create and build the Grey Bruce Music Hall of Fame and hosting radio shows on 560 CFOS for many years.
To his wife Sue, his daughters Karen and Angola, and all family members, we extend our sincere sympathy and support to you.
Thank you so very much, Bill, for your extraordinary dedication and service to our community, it will long be cherished and remembered.”
