The death of Liberal MP Mauril Belanger last night is triggering a flood of tributes. Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale told reporters in Ottawa this morning that Belanger will be sorely missed and long remembered. (The 61-year-old Belanger died after a fight with ALS -- commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease. He was diagnosed with the devastating disease in November of 2015, just weeks after winning re-election in his Ottawa-Vanier riding for the eighth consecutive time.)
