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.

The BC government has introduced legislation to hold a referendum in the fall of 2018, which will ask British Columbians to decide whether BC should keep its current voting system (First Past the Post) or move to a system of Proportional Representation. As part of this process, the government is consulting with British Columbians.

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.

PSAC joins all those celebrating Black History Month by acknowledging the contributions of Black Canadians across the country and throughout our history. In December 1995, the federal Parliament officially recognized February as Black History Month in Canada, following a motion introduced by Jean Augustine, the first Black woman elected to the House of Commons. The motion was carried unanimously.

Our bargaining team met with the employer in Ottawa from February 13 to 15.
