Statement from Sujit Choudhry on behalf of the family of Dr. Sheela Basrur



    TORONTO, June 2 /CNW/ - It is with great sadness that I announce the
death of Dr. Sheela Basrur after a valiant fight against a rare form of
cancer.
    I am making this announcement at the request of Dr. Basrur's family, who,
in the interest of maintaining their privacy, do not wish to speak to the
media at this time.
    A private funeral will be held for Dr. Basrur. At a date to be announced,
a public memorial will be held in recognition of the life and professional
contribution of Dr. Basrur, who was a former Chief Medical Officer of Health
for Ontario, and a former Medical Officer of Health for the City of Toronto.

    Donations may be made in memory of Dr. Basrur to:

    The Grand River Hospital Foundation
    835 King Street West
    Kitchener, Ontario, Canada
