Manitobans are mourning the sudden loss of former member of the legislative assembly, member of Parliament and federal cabinet minister Reg Alcock who passed away today at the age of 63. 

His dedication to Manitoba and his commitment to public service at the provincial and national levels was exemplary.  As a federal cabinet minister, he might best be remembered for his role in advancing public service renewal and reform.  His national contributions while serving as president of the Treasury Board and as minister responsible for the Canadian Wheat Board were substantial and widely recognized and applauded. 

On behalf of all Manitobans, I would like to convey my sincere and deepest sympathies to his wife Karen and their children Sarah, Matthew and Christina.
