Former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney has died

Former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney has died.

He died peacefully, surrounded by family.

The news was announced by his daughter Caroline Mulroney on X (formally Twitter).

He served as Canada’s 18th Prime Minister from 1984 to 1993. He led the party to a landslide victory in the 1984 federal election, winning the second-largest percentage of seats in Canadian history and receiving over 50 percent of the popular vote. Mulroney later won a second majority government in 1988.

Mulroney's tenure was marked by the introduction of the Canada–United States Free Trade Agreement, the goods and services tax, and the privatization of 23 of 61 Crown corporations including Air Canada and Petro-Canada. Mulroney sought Quebec's endorsement of the constitutional amendments by first introducing the Meech Lake Accord and then the Charlottetown Accord.

In April 2023, it was reported that Mulroney was recovering after being treated for prostate cancer.
