The Nisichawayasihk Cree Nation is in mourning today over the passing of our esteemed former Councilor Patrick Linklater. He passed away early this morning at the Thompson General Hospital after battling a chronic illness.
Patrick (fondly known as Pat), served our Nation and people as a leader for 16 years. His wisdom and courage to speak on behalf of our people and future generations will not be forgotten. Most of his adult life was spent pursuing prosperity and wellbeing of
He was dearly loved by his immediate family and our entire Nation. He will be remembered with respect and honour for many years to come as a humble, caring and kind individual. All who knew him will agree that he got along with everyone.
Our Nations flag is flying at half-mast today as we hail the journey of a great man into the Spirit world. He joins our ancestors to continue watching over our people and Nation.
Rest in perfect peace, Patrick Linklater – Father, Grandfather, Brother, Uncle, Partner and Friend to many many others.
