1932-2005

Ron Basford was elected Member of Parliament for

Vancouver Centre in 1963 and served as a 

Minister from 1967-1978. Advances in consumer protection, 

Canada's first Human Rights Act and progressive urban development

are his legacy. With his vision, a decaying industrial site was 

transformed into this urban oasis and model community.

He will be remembered as Mr. Granville Island.
