Sarah Dube

I've been procrastinating in posting the sad news of Sarah Dube's death at age 29.  You can read the impressive details of her life here.

Sarah was the first winner of the James McGregor Stewart Award in 2015.  Her life was one of consequence,  packed with achievements and the business of living.  I knew and admired her as an articulate and outspoken advocate.  Others saw her in action as the excellent  Chair of Independent Living Nova Scotia.

The James McGregor Stewart Society is honored to have been associated with Sarah. Her death leaves a big gap in her community.

Here, thanks to Ryan Delahanty, is Accessible Media's film of Sarah receiving her award in June of 2015

So sad, a big loss to our community, she accomplished much in her short life. I am sure she is rooting for all who continue in her spirit of advocacy!
