As a teacher, federal minister, and university professor and administrator, she has always been concerned with the rights of those less fortunate, especially women, senior citizens, Aboriginal people and children. Two of her initiatives, the Canada Health Act and the Child Tax Credit, will endure as models of progressive policies for the welfare of Canadians.
