Thank you Gwen Barlee for your service to our province

Claire Hume and I are very saddened to hear of Gwen Barlee’s passing. Gwen worked closely with us to help us draft an endangered species act during the spring, 2017 legislative sitting. We had no idea and she gave no indication that she was ill. Gwen was incredibly generous with her time and knowledge, patient and kind with her explanations, and tireless in her resolve to protect endangered species. We are so grateful. Thank you, Gwen, for your service to our province. We will think of you in the wilds of British Columbia and work towards the reintroduction of our Endangered Species Act in the near future.

    Thank you Andrew and Claire for your kind words – and good work on behalf of the environment. We appreciate very much your efforts to get endangered species legislation for BC.

    Rest In Peace, Gwen … any human showing compassion, kindness, and love towards animals deserves a special place and I hope your wonderful soul has found it.
