Details have been announced for Ottawa residents who wish to pay their respects to the late Paul Dewar, former NDP MP for Ottawa Centre. Dewar died on Wednesday after a battle with terminal brain cancer.
In an announcement on his public Facebook page, there will be a “time to gather and share stories” at First United Church at 347 Richmond Rd on Friday, February 22, from 2 to 8 p.m.
A celebration of life will follow on Saturday, at 10:30 a.m. at First United Church at Carleton University, at Dominion-Chalmers Church at 355 Cooper St.
The Dewar family asks that any donations be made to Youth Action Now, the organization Dewar founded in his final year.
