first_imgPremier Rodney MacDonald is offering his personal condolences and those of the province to the family of the late John Abbass, who died today, July 4, in Cape Breton. He was 84. “Mr. Abbass always brought a smile to your face,” said premier MacDonald. “You always knew he was going to speak his mind and say it with humour, but there was always much thought in what he said. My condolences go out to his family, who always offered him so much support over the years in his various endeavours.” Among his many accomplishments, Mr. Abbass founded Abbass Studios in 1946 and was a contract photographer for the Cape Breton Post. He was involved in the Progressive Conservative party, serving as provincial party president from 1985 to 1988. In 2006, the provincial party named him honourary president. -30-last_img
