Muriel Duckworth - Sad News!

I am so sad to report - though I m sure most people who read this know this by now- that Muriel Ducksowrth, a longtime peace , women's and human rights activist has died at the age of 101. We might have known it was coming but Muriel was timeless and I am just devistated to not have this treasure of a person to call on the phone or talk to any more. I hope she is watching us as she is with Jack and others she loved.

See the chronicle Herald thogugh they fail to mention her brave attempts at winning a seat in the Lesgislature in the then called Halifax Cornwallis. I worked on those campaigns and she came a strong second, which we cheered. I am glad she got to see the party win though she'd be happier I know with less war!
