COPE and Progressives in Vancouver lost one of our strongest allies recently. Isabel Minty died last month, April 14, 2017. (Follow this link for her obituary .)
Isabel will be remembered at COPE’s upcoming General Meeting on May 27 3-5:30 pm. at Holy Trinity Anglican Church. Jamie Lee Hamilton will share words in tribute.
“Isabel’s life passion was as a progressive activist” From opposition to gambling expansion in Vancouver, activities at all levels of politics, civic, provincial and federal, countless letters to political leaders and unflagging support for the underdog, Isabel never held back and never gave up.
Here is a video clip on the fight which she championed of the Kerrisdale and five east side Community Centres against the Vancouver Park Board’s attempt to negotiate a new agreement with the centres on revenue-sharing, programming and access.
Her Memorial will be at the Scottish Cultural Centre at 8886 Hudson St., Vancouver from noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday, July 8, 2017
