Statement by LPCA on the Passing of Sen. Tommy Banks

Posted on January 26, 2018

We are extremely saddened to learn of the passing of legendary Senator Tommy Banks. Senator Banks was not only a brilliant musician but an incredibly impactful public servant whose kind demeanor and hardworking nature were appreciated by all.

In reading the numerous personal stories about Senator Banks, it is clear he had a substantial impact on all those in our community and beyond. We, as a country, as a community, and as the Liberal Party of Canada here in Alberta, are poorer as a result of this loss.

We offer the deepest condolences to Tommy’s wife, Ida, and all his family and friends.

– Liberal Party of Canada (Alberta) Chair, Robbie Schuett
