Aaron Bhatnagar has reported that C&R Councillor Linda Leighton died today after a long illness.
While Linda was clearly on the other side of the political spectrum from those of us at City Vision Talk, she is acknowledged as a dedicated servant of her community, and a very genuine person. I recall attending Roskill community board meetings in late 2006 at which Linda forcefully opposed the proposal to toll SH20 through the Ward - probably not a popular position in her party, but something that she clearly felt a duty to speak up on. That is admirable.
Condolences to Linda's family and her C&R colleagues.
