It was with great sadness that I learned of the tragic car accident that took the life of Ann Strutt and injured Patricia DeMille, both of whom are PSAC members who work at the Fisheries and Oceans Canada office in Prince Rupert.

Sister Strutt was a long time DFO employee and a steward in UHEW Local 20147 where she mentored and inspired countless union activists over the years. She was also a highly respected and well liked member of the community, where she served on the Board of the Prince Rupert Unemployed Action Centre Society.

In the lead up to the referendum, PSAC BC has made a submission to the goverment containing three key recommendations on the electoral reform process.
