By PAULA PAULINO, age 9, and EVANGELINE COMEAU-KIRSCHNER, age 9
- I was born September 24, 1925, in Winnipeg, Canada.
- My work began as an Anglican parish priest in western Quebec.
- In 1954 I moved to Toronto and started working in a cardboard box factory. I believed we should always share the working class’s social struggles, which is why I considered myself to be a “worker-priest.”
- I was a strong social justice advocate, peace activist and fought for the rights of refugees. I also campaigned against poverty and homelessness in Canada and abroad.
- I was proud to serve as Toronto alderman and Canadian Member of Parliament with the New Democratic Party after campaigning against poverty, homelessness and war.
- I participated in protest marches, sit-ins and picket lines and sometimes got arrested.
- In the early 1980s I helped put together the Housing Not Hostels Coalition for homeless people.
- After my death on April 24, 2014, my son posted a message about my life, describing me as a “Pacifist, socialist, worker-priest, marxist Anglican, trade-unionist, city councillor, member of parliament, civilly disobedient marcher for human rights. Wearer of red shirts, cyclist, paddler of canoes, singer of songs.”
