Anne Wise and her family joined Joe Preston in Ottawa yesterday to honour former Members of Parliament and Senators who have passed away in the last year.
Former Elgin MP John Wise, who passed away in January, was recognized during the ceremony.
Preston noted that the ceremony was bittersweet, as it’s in remembrance of someone who has been lost, but it also brings people together who haven’t seen each other in years.
