Tracy Porteous has been working to improve the lives of children, youth and families in B.C. for more than 30 years. People have described her as the most innovative, passionate and principled advocate they have met. She has persisted in bringing forward difficult issues and standing up for unpopular ones such as the impact of cuts to services. She has overcome these challenges by being positive, diplomatic, engaging and presenting evidence based reasearch supporting her concerns.
