Brandon Sun - PRINT EDITION

Errol exhibited lifelong commitment to equality

Errol Black is a soul mate. He remains so for all who are determined to seek a better world. A world in which there is greater fairness and equality within society and in the human condition.

His was no momentary, superficial, trendy and short-term commitment to the ideals of a more just and even handed economy and democracy. For his entire life, he stood firm and incorruptible against any and all measures that would disadvantage the lower-income citizens and families but then compound the unearned wealth of the super wealthy.

As an economist, he understood that this growing disparity was a man-made disaster made worse this past quarter century. We should admire his integrity and his values.

I shall remember Errol every time I think of the closing words of U.S. President Franklin Roosevelt’s inaugural — “The real test of our progress as a civilization is not whether we keep adding to the abundance of those who already have much, but rather in whether we add to the lives of those who have less.”

Rt. Hon. Edward Schreyer

Former Governor General of Canada
