A three-term councillor in Sooke has died four months after she was diagnosed with brain cancer.
Sixty-three-year-old Brenda Parkinson's death has been confirmed by Mayor Maja Tait.
She says Parkinson participated in planning Sooke's Canada Day festivities and last month joined friends at a masquerade ball in her honour.
Premier John Horgan attended the gala and says he was lucky to have a last dance with Parkinson, who was in a wheelchair.
