Long-time Sudbury reporter and New Democrat activist Carol Mulligan passed away on the weekend. 

In a joint statement, several of her provincial NDP MPP colleagues expressed their condolences. Leader Andrea Horwath, along with France Gelinas and Jamie West said they are:

"…deeply saddened to learn today of the passing of Carol Mulligan. Carol was a talented journalist and a thoughtful storyteller committed to showing the human side of every issue. As a reporter and an activist, she worked tirelessly to keep her fellow citizens informed and to be a voice for those whose stories would otherwise not be heard.  My thoughts are with Carol’s family and loved ones today, and with her community of Sudbury. We have all lost a powerful and compassionate voice.”

Leading into the 2018 provincial election, Mulligan sought the NDP nomination for Sudbury.
