York Region Chairman and CEO Wayne Emmerson extends condolences following the passing of Aline Chrétien

Chairment Statement Picture

On behalf of York Regional Council, we offer our deepest and sincerest condolences to the Right Honourable Jean Chrétien, former Prime Minister of Canada, on the passing of his wife Aline Chrétien.

Married to the former prime minister for more than 63 years, Aline was a trusted partner, advisor and a constant presence at Jean Chrétien’s side during his political career of four decades.  

A strong matriarch to her family and our great nation, Aline leaves a legacy that will live through her children, grandchildren and all of those who had the opportunity to know her and love her.

We join all Canadians in sharing this great loss and offer support to the Chrétien family during this difficult time.

Wayne Emmerson
York Region Chairman and CEO
