A statement from Toronto Mayor David Miller on the passing of June Callwood



    TORONTO, April 14 /CNW/ - "Toronto, and indeed all of Canada, has lost a
true hero today. A wife, mother, humanitarian, activist, journalist and
author, her kindness and absolute professionalism should forever serve as an
inspiration to us all. Her commitment to social justice and equity will leave
a lasting legacy. Whether it was caring for her family and friends or fighting
for strangers, she injected everything she did with unwavering commitment and
compassion.
    "I considered her a strong friend and a true Torontonian who changed our
city for the better. My thoughts and condolences go out to June's husband,
Trent Frayne, her family and friends. Her numerous contributions to this city
shall not be forgotten."

    Toronto is Canada's largest city and sixth largest government, and home
to a diverse population of about 2.6 million people. It is the economic engine
of Canada and one of the greenest and most creative cities in North America.
In the past three years Toronto has won more than 50 awards for quality and
innovation in delivering public services. Toronto's government is dedicated to
prosperity, opportunity and liveability for all its residents.
