Max Khan the councillor for Ward 6 in Oakville and the nominated Federal Liberal candidate for North Oakville/Burlington has passed away. He was a resident of Oakville for the past 25 years, and served as a town councillor since 2006. 

Aside from sitting on City Council, Max was very active within his community. He previously sat on the Board of Directors for Oakville Hydro, and is currently the Legal Advisor for the Canadian Caribbean Association of Halton. He was supported in his bid to become the Liberal candidate by Oakville Mayor Rob Burton along with five councillors.

Mayor Rob Burton issued the following statement at approximately 3:00 AM, March 29, 2015.

“It is with extreme sadness that I must inform you that our friend and colleague Max Khan passed away Saturday night shortly after midnight. I understand he went to the hospital around 7pm with a variety of pneumonia-like symptoms. He had told several of us that he had been suffering with what he believed to be a flu for several days.”

“Words cannot express my profound sadness and grief as I personally try to process how this 46 year old, three time cancer survivor can be taken from us so quickly and unexpectedly. Max was simply a great guy and I am going to miss him dearly,” stated Jeff Knoll, Town & Regional Councillor Ward 5.

Max was planning to open up his campaign office on April 18th, and a large function was planned, which was his last Facebook post on March 24, 2015.  His last twitter post was on March 26th.

“Max loved people; always the first to say “What can I do to help?” Max loved serving the public and helping the most vulnerable – especially our seniors, whom he felt we all owed a debt of gratitude. But most of all, Max loved his family and friends, always being the strong shoulder to lean on,” posted Pam Damoff on her facebook page. 

Sean O’Meara, Town & Regional Councillor posted on Facebook, “My great friend and supporter ‪#‎maxkhan‬ passed away last night. Words cannot describe the loss to our community to his family and to me. God bless my friend. I miss you already.”

Max Khan leaves behind his beloved father, mother, three sisters, brother and a son. He survived three fights with Cancer. He passed away shortly after midnight at Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital at the age of 46. The funeral is expected to be held on Monday, March 30, 2015.
