It is with sadness I hear of Charlie's passing, my sincere condolences to Carol-Ann and his family. Charlie was a true advocate when working with his passion of housing for Aboriginal People; I enjoyed working with him while he served on the Board at Gignul Housing here in Ottawa. He sure is going to be missed but he must now take direction to the Spirit World where he will soar among the eagles...RIP Charlie

Charlie was a mentor and a dear friend. I remember the good times, his smile and red pen. He was a kind man and helped many individuals throughout his life. A candle will be in the window tomorrow night to celebrate the passing of a good friend.

I am sending my condolences, prayers and warm thoughts to Charlie's family and loved ones. Charlie and I had many wonderful adventures working together at the Assembly of First Nations on Wisdom of the Fire, a fire safety curriculum. He was such a strong advocate for First Nations housing and made significant contributions in this area for many years. I will miss you and chat with you in my dreams Charlie. Paulette
