News of Flora Mac­Don­ald’s death has brought a wave of con­do­lences from across the coun­try, in­clud­ing these via Twit­ter:

• Joe Clark (for­mer prime min­is­ter)

“I mourn the pass­ing of Flora Mac­Don­ald, whose com­pas­sion, lead­er­ship & ex­am­ple changed lives across our coun­try & around the world #cd­npoli.”

• Ce­cil Clarke (Cape Bre­ton Re­gional Mu­nic­i­pal­ity mayor)

“Hon. Flora Mac­Don­ald, daugh­ter of North Syd­ney, passed away. A pi­o­neer, politi­cian, and hu­man­i­tar­ian, #Cape­Bre­ton was al­ways in her heart.”

• Lisa Raitt (MP, min­is­ter of trans­port)

“Grow­ing up I knew that Flora Mac­Don­ald was a Cab­i­net Min­is­ter orig­i­nally from Cape Bre­ton. What I un­der­stand now is how (im­por­tant) that was. Min. Mac­Don­ald demon­strated that any ca­reer was pos­si­ble — even for a girl from Whit­ney Pier. She cleared our path and I am grate­ful.”
