New Brunswick Liberal MP Dominic LeBlanc has been discharged from a hospital in Montreal after successfully undergoing a stem cell transplant to treat cancer.
LeBlanc, a cabinet minister under Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, announced the news on Twitter on Wednesday.
In the statement, LeBlanc and his wife thanked the doctors, nurses and staff at the Maisonneuve Rosemont Hospital for the care he has received.
“I am feeling stronger every day and very much looking forward to returning to New Brunswick as soon as possible,” he wrote.
LeBlanc stepped away from his duties as minister of intergovernmental and northern affairs in April after being diagnosed with a form of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, a type of blood cancer.
He successfully won re-election in the riding of Beausejour during the federal election in October.
LeBlanc is the son of Romeo LeBlanc, a longtime MP who later became a senator and, eventually, governor general.
