McIvor honoured in HoC

South Okanagan—West Kootenay MP Richard Cannings rose to speak in the House of Commons Monday to honour the late Penticton community booster Rory McIvor.

“My hometown of Penticton, B.C. lost one of its biggest supporters last Nov. 18,” Cannings said, listing some of McIvor’s achievements.

He was the director of the Penticton Library for 27 years, two-term city councillor, school trustee for 11 years, president of the local Rotary Club and OK College governor.

“Rory loved Penticton and always went to work with a smile on his face. Penticton loved him back,” Cannings said. “So to Rory’s wife Anna, and his family and friends, I can truly say he will be missed.”

Parliament rose to a standing ovation following the statement.
