Mitchell Sharp, Political Elder Statesman

May 11, 1911 - March 19, 2004

Mitchell Sharp, a fixture in Canadian politics and an an officer of the Order of Canada, died Friday, March 19, 2004, of cancer in Ottawa. He was 92.

Mitchell Sharp was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, on May 11, 1911, and as a teen struggled to help the family pay its bills. He dropped out of school at 14 to earn money as a messenger, but eventually returned and got a BA from the University of Manitoba in his spare time. After graduating, in 1934, he pursued further studies there and then, helped by a wealthy benefactor, he spent a year at London School of Economics During that time, he worked as an economist and writer specializing in the grain trade.

Sharp started his long career in public service in 1947 when he was offered the job as the Director of the Ministry of Finance's Economic Policy Division. From 1951 to 1957, Sharp served as the Associate Deputy Minister of Trade and Commerce. During his tenure, he was responsible for international trade relations. He served briefly as Deputy Minister of Trade and Commerce before resigning from the public service in 1958 to take up an appointment as Vice-President of Brazilian Traction, Light and Power Company (a company that would become Brascan, one of the first Canadian-owned multinationals).

Sharp's political career began soon afterward when Pearson asked him to help create the Liberal party's election platform in the early 1960s. In 1963, Sharp was elected as a member of parliament representing Toronto's Eglinton riding. Shortly thereafter, he was assigned the portfolio of Minister of Trade and Commerce. From 1965 through 1968, Sharp was the Minister of Finance. This was a crucial period during which national medicare was born. Other ministerial positions held include Secretary of State for External Affairs (1968-1974), Deputy Prime Minister (1968-1974), President of the Privy Council (1974-1978) and Leader of Government of the House of Commons (1974-1978).

Behind all the political intrigue, Sharp suffered personal tragedy. His wife Daisy, whom he wed in 1938, was fighting an incurable disease that left her an invalid for years and killed her in 1975. They had one son. In 1976, a year after his first wife died, Sharp married Jeanette Dugal. She died in 1998 and Sharp married Jeanne d'Arc Labrecque two years later, when he was 89.

Sharp left politics for an appointment as commissioner for the Northern Pipeline Agency from 1978 until 1988. He also served as Co-Chairman of a Task Force on Conflict of Interest, which published a report on ethical conduct in the public service. Other posts included head of the Canadian group and deputy chairman of the Trilateral Commission (1976-1986). He then returned to the private sector as a Policy Associate with the think tank, Strategicon.

At 82, after a half-century of public service, Sharp signed on as a $1-a-year personal adviser to the new prime minister Chretien - a position he held until Dec. 11, 2003, the day before Paul Martin replaced Chretien as prime minister.

Music was extremely important to Sharp, (he played the piano) and in the last years of his life he devoted a lot of time to help the National Arts Centre and the National Arts Centre Orchestra under Pinchas Zuckerman.

On February 22, 2004, Mr. Sharp fell and broke his collarbone in his home. He was taken to Elizabeth Bruyere Health Centre, in Ottawa, where he was diagnosed with an aggressive form of prostate cancer. Sharp was then admitted to the palliative care unit of an Ottawa hospital.

A service was held in March in Ottawa, during which, The National Arts Centre Orchestra had some of their members - including Zuckerman
