On Saturday April 18, at the age of 92, Joy Prittie passed away peacefully at St. Mary’s General Hospital due to congestive heart failure and complications arising from a severe nosebleed. A private family graveside service was held and presided over by Reverend Victor Kischak, the Rector at the Church of the Holy Saviour. The Venerable Peter Townshend, former Rector at Holy Saviour, assisted.
Driving up with my parents in our packed van to Frosh week 1993 I was telling myself that of course I would be in the girls’ residence building. After all, it had four floors and only one girls’ floor was in the boys’ building. The odds were definitely in my favour. But the cheery leaders told me I was ‘one of the lucky ones’ to be on Babes in Boyland.

Renison University College rejects racism and hatred in all its forms and stands in firm solidarity with racialized communities. We declare our commitment to anti-racism in response to the recent murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police and the police-involved death of Regis Korchinski-Paquet in Toronto, as well as the other numerous incidents of racial violence that have led to the deaths of Black, Indigenous, and people of colour (BIPOC) (Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Jason Collins, Eishia Hudson, D’Andre Campbell, Machuar Madut, among others).
