Libby Davies built a career on going to bat for those who live on the margins: sex workers, people who use drugs, the poor, and members of the LGBTQ community. She served as NDP MP for Vancouver East from 1997 to 2015 and, before that, a city councillor under the Coalition of Progressive Electors banner from 1982 to 1993. She was also a founding member of the Downtown Eastside Residents Association, which fought for the neighbourhood’s most vulnerable residents. Ms. Davies recounts four decades of political activism in her new book, Outside In: A Political Memoir, which launches in Vancouver Wednesday with an event at the SFU Goldcorp Centre for the Arts. The Globe and Mail spoke with Ms. Davies on progress made, and the road ahead. Read the full interview at the link below.
