OTTAWA, Canada (sentinel.ht) – Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, issued a statement upon learning of the death of former Haitian President René Préval on Friday. He expressed sadness at President Preval’s passing, highlighted his commitment to democracy and strength in the face of challenges to the country.

The statement reads:

It is with sadness that I learned of the death of René Préval, a two-term president of Haiti.

Mr. Préval was first elected as President in 1996. He left office in 2001, becoming Haiti’s first elected president to serve a full term, before returning to the presidency for another full term in 2006.

Canada will remember his commitment to democracy as we continue to support Haiti’s development, and work with the Haitian people to address the economic and humanitarian challenges facing their country.

On behalf of the Government of Canada, Sophie and I offer our condolences to Mr. Préval’s family and friends, and to the Haitian people.
