It is our sad duty of inform you of the peaceful passing of our former colleague, retired Commander (RCN) David Statham at the Ottawa General Hospital on Saturday, February 27, 2016 at the age of 74.
David served at MDLO between 2004 and 2014 as the Director Access to Information and Privacy and as a Commissioner of Oaths. He came to our law office with an abundance of administrative experience gained during his long and distinguished naval career. He was relied upon also for his vast expertise in the access and privacy law domain. His activities in that field on behalf of MDLO and our corporate clients are now immortalized in the abundant jurisprudential record created by the Federal Court and the Federal Court of Appeal circa 2009 2010 that bear his name as the litigant.
MDLO extends its deepest sympathies to his spouse, Susanne, his daughter Lisa and sons Brian and Robert as well as his step-daughters Taranee and Kristina.
