Barrett memorial live-stream

Former B.C. premier Dave Barrett will be honoured with a state memorial service this Saturday at the University of Victoria's Farquhar Auditorium starting at 10 a.m.

If you are unable to attend the service will be live-streamed.
 
Barrett led B.C.'s first New Democratic Party government from September 1972 until December 1975.

He died three weeks ago in Victoria at the age of 87, following a long struggle with Alzheimer's Disease.

An online book of condolences has been set up.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be directed to the Alzheimer's Society of B.C., the Oak Bay Kiwanis Pavilion or a charity of choice.
