Kingston 1 May 2019 – The Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, the Honourable Olivia Grange, is paying tribute to the Jamaican-born Canadian media boss, Fitzroy Gordon, who passed away on Tuesday.

Minister Grange said Gordon — who founded Canada’s only Black and Caribbean owned and operated radio station, G98.7FM — was an “outstanding promoter of Jamaican and Caribbean culture and a hero of the Black community in Toronto.”

Minister Grange said:

“Fitzroy Gordon achieved so much and made such a remarkable difference in the lives of so many people. I was always impressed by the way he dedicated his life to helping people, especially expatriates from Jamaica and the rest of the Caribbean, promoting our culture and traditions, and giving a real voice to Black issues through G98.7fm.”

Minister Grange has extended condolences to Gordon’s family, friends and the Caribbean community in Canada “who will mourn this great loss.”
