Statement by Flor Marcelino on the Passing of Harvey Smith

We are deeply saddened by the passing of Harvey Smith.

Harvey was a tireless advocate for families and working people.

Harvey was an activist first and a politician second. Accolades and the limelight were not his goals.

He spent long hours fighting for equality as a city councilor and as an MLA. Those who worked with him knew they could count on him to never give up a fight.

He fought for poor and working people – for affordable transportation, for improvements to local community centres and a more just city and province.

Harvey will be missed by all who worked and fought alongside him and those who were touched by his actions as a political leader.
