City of Toronto pays tribute to Deputy Mayor Pam McConnell
Deputy Mayor Pam McConnell (Ward 28 Toronto Centre-Rosedale), a long-time member of Toronto City Council, passed away earlier today at the age of 71.
"It is with a heavy heart that I extend deepest condolences on behalf of Toronto City Council to Pam's husband Jim, their daughters Heather Ann and Madelyn, grandchildren and all members of her family," said Mayor John Tory. "Pam was a wonderful advocate for Toronto's most vulnerable residents. She spent much of her career advocating for social justice, education and literacy and poverty reduction. I respected the empathy, passion and common sense she brought to her role. She will be missed immensely but her work has ensured that this city is a stronger and fairer place."
