In Memoriam: Shirley Marcovitz

My sympathies today go out to former city councillor Henry Marcovitz and his family. Henry's dear wife Shirley passed away on  Saturday.

When I first started covering Côte Saint-Luc city council meetings for The Suburban almost three decades ago I got to know Henry quite well. He was a financial wizard and always had something interesting to say. Well, we all know behind every great man is a woman and in Henry's case that certainly was Shirley. She happily accompanied him to community events and was an absolute delight to speak with.

A couple of years ago Henry and Shirley became constituents of mine in District 2, purchasing a condominium apartment. I must say that I was honoured to have someone with Henry's political past as part of my electorate. Interestingly, though, it was Shirley who began communicating with me almost immediately. She handled the email in the household and a number of occasions she would send me messages about the state of Rembrandt Park.  When I held one of my District Information meetings about the park, she and Henry were in attendance. I was not aware she was ill and I actually thought about the two of them the other day while planning my next meeting with constituents in June.  The focus will in fact be Rembrandt Park again, but this time with a very interactive format. I was so much looking forward to Shirley's input.

My sympathies to Henry, her children, grandchildren and other family members.  Funeral services from Paperman & Sons, will be held on Monday, March 12 at  noon. Burial at Tifereth Beth David Jerusalem Congregation Cemetery, Tifereth Jerusalem Section, de la Savane.  Contributions in her memory may be made to the “Shirley Marcovitz Memorial Fund" c/o the Jewish General Hospital Foundation.

Pussy Riot’s roots are in the US underground punk-rock movement from two decades ago. In an interview earlier this year with Vice magazine, the band said it was influenced by Riot Grrrl, the feminist punk-rock movement from the early 1990s that originated in the Pacific Northwest.

I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
