Sisters and Brothers,

We have a tradition at our Regional Conventions, in which we hold a moment of silence to honour our Sisters and Brothers who have passed away.

I invite PSAC Locals and Activists to send to my office the names of PSAC BC region members who have passed away since our last Regional Convention in April 2014 so that we can add their names to the honour roll.

Please send those names to Patrick Bragg, Political Communications Officer (BraggP@psac-afpc.com) by Monday, June 5, 2017.
