Remembering Pam McConnell ….
Pamela Margaret McConnell
February 14, 1946 – July 7, 2017
On July 7, 2017 we lost Pam McConnell, a dear friend and supporter of YSM. McConnell, a city councillor since 1994 and a champion of Toronto’s poverty-reduction strategy, moved mountains and helped build a city of love and equality. She will be remembered for her fierce advocacy for social justice and her passion for family.
We thank her for all of her hard work and dedication to social advocacy and hope to honour her legacy by continuing to fight for what she worked for, what she lived for – to help those in need.
“The survival and prosperity of Toronto demands that we pay attention to moving as many Torontonians as possible down the road from poverty to prosperity” -Pam McConnell
