15 Novembre 2017

Friends and colleagues are "shocked and saddened" by the death of Saskatchewan Party MLA Kevin Phillips, says Premier Brad Wall.

Melfort MLA Kevin Phillips has passed away at the age of 63.

The provincial government announced the news Tuesday morning. "Kevin was back in Regina yesterday, getting ready for another week of doing what he loved to do-representing the people of Melfort in the Assembly-so his passing was completely without warning. Our deepest condolences, thoughts and prayers go to Kevin's wife, April, and his children and grandchildren".

NDP leader Nicole Sarauer also expressed her condolences on the passing of Phillips, calling him an incredibly kind man who shared wisdom on life and politics.

Before he was elected as an MLA, Phillips was mayor of Melfort. The North East Outreach and Support Services' shelter was the first since 1989. Phillips held various important positions in the Assembly, most recently serving on the Government's House leadership team as Deputy Whip.

Phillips is survived by his wife April, four children and several grandchildren.

Wall said it is a hard day and several other MLA's on both sides of the legislature paid condolences on the passing of Phillips.

Flags at the legislature have been lowered to half-mast in honour of Phillips.
