Décès de James Shea | Passing of James Shea

Monsieur le Président, C'est le coeur lourd que je prends la parole à la Chambre aujourd'hui pour informer les députés du décès de James Shea, qui nous a quittés le 29 décembre. Jim croyait dans le potentiel de chaque enfant. Enseignant et directeur d'école, il s'est consacré toute sa vie à l'éducation. Il a été président de la Commission scolaire Western Québec, directeur du Conseil des écoles catholiques d'Ottawa, et directeur de l'organisme Canadian Parents for French. La foi de Jim guidait toutes ses actions. Jim et Theresa, son épouse depuis 55 ans, ainsi que leurs quatre filles étaient des fidèles de l'église Saint-Mark. C'est à cette église que j'ai rencontré Jim pour la première fois, il y a une vingtaine d'années. Jim défendait toujours les opprimés. Il a travaillé sans relâche pour les minorités linguistiques. Sa passion était la dualité linguistique canadienne. En novembre dernier, cet ardent défenseur de l'inclusion, de l'équité et de la justice pour tous avait été nommé conseiller au nouveau Programme de contestation judiciaire. C'était un grand homme qui manquera cruellement à sa famille, à ses amis et à notre pays bien-aimé. Je remercie Jim Shea. ---- Mr. Speaker, it is with a heavy heart that I rise in the House today to inform members of the passing of James Shea, who died December 29. Jim believed in the potential of each child. Teacher, principal, lifelong educator, he served as chair and president of the Western Quebec School Board. He was the superintendent of the Ottawa Catholic School Board, and he also led Canadian Parents for French. Jim's faith girded his actions. Jim and Theresa, his wife of 55 years, and their four girls were stalwart members of Saint Mark's church. It was there that I first met Jim some 20 years ago. Jim always championed the underdog. He was a tireless advocate for linguistic minority communities. He was very passionate about Canada's linguistic duality. A strong advocate for inclusion, equity and justice for all, it was only last November that Jim was named as an adviser to the revamped court challenges program. He was a great man who will be sorely missed by his family and friends and by our beloved country. I thank Jim Shea.
