Statement from the Leader of the Official Opposition on the Passing of Don Black

It was with great sadness that I learned today of the passing of the devoted community activist, public servant and friend, Don Black.

In politics, business, and sport, Don devoted himself to building community, fighting for change and advocating for Saskatchewan people.

Don’s political organizing supported generations of New Democrats but that commitment to community extended beyond partisan politics. He will be missed by many but the change Don affected and impression he made on our province will not be soon forgotten.

On behalf of all Saskatchewan New Democrats, I offer sincere condolences, much love and solidarity to his wife Tracy Davies, their family and all those who were fortunate enough to have known Don.
