Statement By The Lieutenant Governor On The Death Of Dr. James Fraser Mustard

TORONTO, Nov. 17, 2011 /CNW/ - I have learned with deep regret of the passing of Dr. Fraser Mustard, world-renowned and award-winning expert on childhood development.

As a physician and scientist, Dr. Mustard was a member of the team that discovered the role of aspirin in the prevention of heart attacks and one of the founders of the medical school at McMaster University in Hamilton.

He also created and established The Canadian Institute for Advanced Research, which linked researchers across Canada in the fields of economics, education, social and health policies, as well as various technology fields such as robotics.

But it was as the co-author, with former New Brunswick Lieutenant Governor, Margaret Norrie McCain, of a seminal report on early childhood learning, that Dr. Mustard made his greatest impact. His continuing work on the importance to society of early childhood development earned him global recognition.

I had the great pleasure of meeting Dr. Mustard and interviewing him about his important work in learning and education. His contributions were significant, beyond anything he did in the medical field. He was a wise, interesting, and fascinating man.

As The Queen's representative in Ontario, I send my sincere condolences to Dr. Mustard's children and grandchildren.
