Overview

In 2009, Canadian social activist Muriel Duckworth died at the age of 101. In the weeks that followed, memorial services were held in Austin, Halifax, Montreal, Ottawa, Quebec, Toronto, and Vancouver as people from across Canada recognized that her passing marked the end of an era. This book celebrates the last dozen years of her life and brings together stories and photographs from family and close friends. The result is a charming portrait of a feisty politico and her views on education, religion, war, and death.
