Posted on

OTTAWA – A former NDP member of Parliament says his brain cancer is terminal.

Paul Dewar, who represented Ottawa Centre from 2006 until 2015, announced in February that he was undergoing treatment for a brain tumour but did not give details of his prognosis.

Dewar now says that he was diagnosed with terminal grade 4 glioblastoma – the same type of cancer that killed Gord Downie.
