In Memoriam: Dave Barrett


With sadness, the Alzheimer Society of B.C. would like to recognize the passing of a British Columbian legend, former premier Dave Barrett.

Premier from 1972 to 1975, Mr. Barrett’s government brought British Columbia significant progress, notably introducing Pharmacare and advocating for social policy. Mr. Barrett lived with Alzheimer’s disease; in lieu of flowers, the family has asked that donations be made to the Alzheimer Society of B.C. We want to acknowledge this generosity and willingness to help other British Columbians affected by the disease. Our thoughts are with the Barrett family.
