SURREY, BC--(Marketwired - April 10, 2014) - Coast Capital Savings was saddened to learn of the death of former Finance Minister Jim Flaherty earlier today, and offers its condolences to his family and colleagues.
"I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Flaherty and his team during his tenure as Minister of Finance, and believe he has left a tremendous legacy for the credit union sector and for all Canadians," said Tracy Redies, CEO.
Redies noted that Flaherty's work to introduce legislation enabling credit unions to operate federally was particularly significant for the credit union sector.
"As Finance Minister, Mr. Flaherty had the vision to provide credit unions the opportunity to expand beyond provincial borders. While not every credit union will choose this path, it's an important option to have available in our sector. Mr. Flaherty had a keen understanding of the role credit unions play in Canada's economy, and took significant steps to help ensure we remain strong and competitive."

I'm a lonely sensor. I spend all day telling the world how I'm feeling, but none of the other sensors seem to care. I want to be connected. I want to build relationships with other sensors to be more useful for my human. I want my human to understand that when my friends next door are too hot for a while, I'll soon be flaming.
