Peterborough – Maryam Monsef, Member of Parliament for Peterborough—Kawartha, made the following statement in regards to the death of former Peterborough MP and MPP Peter Adams:
“It is with great sadness that I learned of the passing of Peter Adams. To me, Peter has been an inspiration, mentor, and above all else, a dear friend. We have shared many conversations and I am truly appreciative for all of the time and guidance he shared with me.
“Peter served Peterborough admirably, not only as an elected official, but as a contributing community member and neighbour to us all. He loved Peterborough, and worked tirelessly to represent the interests of the people who live here. His favourite word was Peterborough. Anyone who met him would know his willingness to speak openly and honestly was matched only by his intelligence, humour, and kindness.
