In an open letter, Dewar says the disease has given him a “new determination” to support young people’s aspirations, so he and several friends have founded an organization called “Youth Action Now.”

He says the organization will “support grassroots change driven by young people.”

Dewar lost his seat to Environment Minister Catherine McKenna in the 2015 election, and became a board member for Human Rights Watch Canada and Partners in Health Canada.
