Statement by the Right Honourable Paul Martin on the passing of Professor Wangari Maathai, Nobel Peace Prize winner.

MONTREAL, Sept. 26, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - "Wangari Maathai represented the best of Africa. Her concern for people and the environment in which they lived knew no bounds. The creation of the Congo Basin Forest Fund was but one in a long list of her accomplishments. She will be missed and I will miss her very much. Sheila joins me in expressing our deepest sympathy to her children and family"

Professor Maathai and Paul Martin were co-chairs of the CBFF, a fund set up by the British and Norvegian Governments which worked closely with the African Development Bank.
