The Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission is deeply saddened by the sudden passing of commissioner Pat Skinner on Friday, Feb. 15. As a prominent human rights advocate, her work touched many Nova Scotians and extended well beyond her appointment as a commissioner in 2010. Ms. Skinner was a recipient of the Human Rights Award in 2006 and a past employee of the commission in the 1980s. “We are all deeply saddened and her presence at the commission will be truly missed,” said Human Rights Commission director and CEO David Shannon. “Pat typified what it is to be a caring member of our Nova Scotia community and our heartfelt condolences go out to her family.” Ms. Skinner worked tirelessly in her efforts to advance equality, inclusion and dignity through the many committees and organizations where she dedicated her efforts. As a proud Nova Scotian, she made it her life’s work to improve social justice for everyone and to create a better future for young people. She has left a legacy of passion, dedication and determination to strive for social equality for all.
