Statement from Mayor Bigger on the passing of Alex Trebek

On behalf of the entire City of Greater Sudbury I want to express our condolences to the Trebek family.

Alex Trebek enjoyed international stardom while still maintaining that northern charm and spirit that followed him wherever he went. Millions of people welcomed him into their homes every night for decades yet when meeting him, you truly felt like he was an old family friend.

Alex was an amazing ambassador for Greater Sudbury and was truly responsible for putting our city on the map for the world to know. He was loved, respected and he will be missed. However his legacy and memory will long be part of Greater Sudbury's proud history.

The City of Greater Sudbury will be creating a virtual book of condolences for citizens to leave their messages for the Trebek family, which should be available in the coming days. Flags will also be lowered in Mr. Trebek's memory.

Mayor Brian Bigger
