Premier Christy Clark made the following statement on the death of Dr. Clyde Hertzman:
"British Columbia has lost one of its brightest lights in Dr. Clyde Hertzman. His trailblazing work on early childhood and human development attracted global attention. The research he led will continue to change lives for the better.
"Recognized not only as a world leader, but an inspiration to those who followed and supported his work, I can think of few people who better represented B.C. and Canada at our finest.
"But the scientist and researcher also left his mark with those who knew him best. My thoughts and prayers are with Dr. Hertzman's family as they mourn his loss."
