Deb Hope, a valued member of the board of Corrine’s Quest, has succumbed to the ravages of Alzheimer’s disease. Most will remember her as a reporter and announcer on Global TV, where she was much loved and appreciated for her professionalism, dedication to the job, and her contagious sense of humour.
Beginning in the ’80 I was a regular guest on Global speaking about parenting issues. Most of the time I worked with Deb, who impressed me with her appreciation for the subject. When she retired from broadcasting I invited he to join me and others in Corrine’s Quest, the national campaign to end physical punishment of children. She eagerly agreed to serve but was not able to make a large contribution because of the progress of her medical condition.
Canada has lost a much-loved TV Journalist as well as a valuable champion for the rights of children.
Thank you for your valuable contribution Deb. We will miss you.
