Sir Edmund Hillary - Gone, But Never Forgotten - Rodney Hide
ACT Leader Rodney Hide was today saddened to learn of the death of Sir Edmund Hillary in Auckland this morning, and expressed his sympathy to Sir Edmund's family.
"Both myself and ACT Deputy Leader Heather Roy would like to say how sad we are that Sir Edmund has passed; our hearts go out to his family and loved ones," Mr Hide said.
"Sir Edmund Hillary was one of New Zealand's greatest icons - a perfect example of the country's indomitable spirit and can-do attitude.
"With his work both here and overseas - as well as his legendary exploits - Sir Edmund will continue to serve as an inspiration for generations of Kiwis to come," Mr Hide said.
