B.C. political parties are in rare agreement on Isobel Mackenzie’s significant contributions in her 10 years as the province’s first seniors advocate.

“She’s seen big changes, to her credit, though she continues to push for more support for seniors and has been a relentless advocate for them,” Eby told The Tyee in a December interview. “I know it will be difficult to fill her shoes and I’m grateful for the work she’s done for seniors in B.C.
