Libby Davies retires from politics but not from activism

Former New Democratic Party deputy leader Libby Davies bid farewell to public life but not to activism at her celebration of 18 years as a member of Parliament Thursday.

She helped open Canada's first legal injection clinic and proposed the unanimously supported motion to compensate thalidomide victims.

"I'll always be an activist. I'll always be someone who works on issues that I care deeply about. But I can do it without being a member of Parliament," she said in an interview after her address.

Over 100 people piled into the basement room of the Mount Pleasant Royal Canadian Legion, a veterans' centre turned bingo hall, to say goodbye. The sentiment seemed to be happy for her retirement but sad to see her leave politics.
