I was greatly saddened to learn of the passing of John Dobson.
He was a great man and a true champion of freedom.
A successful entrepreneur, John could have comfortably spent his life concentrating on his various business ventures.
But he chose not to do so.
He understood the importance of promoting and protecting the values and principles that underpin the free market system.
And so throughout his life, he generously and tirelessly supported efforts across the country to foster Canada's entrepreneurial spirit and to defend free market ideals.
It's hard to think of a better legacy.
With his passing the business world has lost a leader; free marketers have lost an ally, and I have lost a good friend.
