Farewell to Pam McConnell

Farewell to Pam McConnell

August 2017

City councillor Pam McConnell passed away much too early at age 71.  Pam was busy in her large Ward 28 and as deputy mayor, but was also a steadfast champion for both the Waterfront and the Islands.  Pam was highly admired and respected and will be missed.

Her ability to wrap up complex issues and see through a bureaucratic haze is clear in this video from City Council.

Books of condolence are available at city hall and online.

Deputy Mayor McConnell’s family encourages everyone to commemorate her in a way that is meaningful to them. Also at the request of the family, in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to any of the following organizations:
