Premier Dennis King has issued the following statement on the passing of George Proud:

“I was saddened to hear of the passing of George Proud this morning. He was a proud Islander with a passion and deep-rooted commitment to serving his community that was unwavering. To his friends and colleagues, George was always a source of kindness and wisdom. 

During his time in public office, he was a tireless champion for the provincial district of 5th Queens and federal riding of Charlottetown, fighting hard for what mattered most to his constituents. His years of hard work and public service to advance the interests of Prince Edward Island will not be forgotten. Our province is better for having his service and our deepest condolences are with his family and loved ones.”
