A former provincial cabinet minister who represented the district of Harbour Main under former premiers Danny Williams and Kathy Dunderdale, has passed away.
Tom Hedderson was 68.
Hedderson, a former educator, was first elected in the district in 1999 and was re-elected three times, retiring from politics in 2015. He carried a number of ministerial portfolios including Education, Tourism, Intergovernmental Affairs, and Fisheries.
Opposition Leader David Brazil is offering his deepest condolences to Hedderson’s family calling the former politician “one of the nicest people you could ever meet.”
