Statement on the passing of the Honourable J. Léonce Bernard

Lieutenant Governor's Office

“Dorothy and I were saddened to hear that our friend and a long-time public servant, the Honourable Léonce Bernard has died. Mr. Bernard was a tremendous worker for his Island community, especially the Evangeline region that was his life-long home.

“Through his work at the Credit Union and continuing throughout his political career and Vice-Regal service, he was an ardent promoter and builder for the cooperative movement. He enjoyed great support from his community in return, both in business and through six consecutive provincial election victories.

“I, along with my wife, Dorothy, our family and the staff at Government House extend our deepest sympathies to Mrs. Florence Bernard, their children and grand children on their loss and wish them peace of mind in many happy family memories.”
