Robert Goldwin Elgie, former Chair of the PMPRB, remembered
It is with profound sadness that we have learned that Dr. Elgie passed away on April 3, 2013.
Dr. Elgie was a remarkable man. A lawyer and neurosurgeon, Robert Elgie had a long and distinguished career in public service. He was Chief of Medical Staff at the Scarborough General Hospital, sat in the Ontario Legislature as MPP for York East and held several cabinet posts, such as Minister of Labour and Minister of Consumer and Commercial Relations, to name a few. He went on to chair the Ontario Workmen´s Compensation Board, the Nova Scotia Workmen´s Compensation Board, participated in the establishment of the Health Law Institute at Dalhousie University and served as its first Director.
Appointed Chair of the Patented Medicine Prices Review Board in 1995, he made an invaluable contribution to the organization. During his 10-year tenure, he showed leadership and dedication in every action he took. He shared his passion for learning as well as his curiosity and desire to get to the root of a question. He was knowledgeable, quick-witted and generous. He genuinely cared for people and was interested in their points of view.
Robert Elgie believed that we all have a duty to leave our world a better place. He did just that. In May 2001, Dalhousie University awarded him a Doctor of Laws, honoris causa, in recognition of his outstanding personal achievements. His lifelong contribution to public service was recognized in 2003 when he was awarded the Order of Canada. He continued to serve, as founding Chair of Ontario's Greenbelt Council until 2011 and as Chair of the Ontario Press Council where he remained to the end.
I am joined by Board Staff, Members and former Members in offering Dr. Elgie´s family and friends our most heartfelt condolences. He will be greatly missed.
