Basil was a strong advocate for people. I worked at Peninsula Hospital for a year starting in August of 1980. When employees had a problem or issue with management and needed support they sought out Basil. He always made an effort to support staff members and seek a fair resolution to the problem. Movements to advance towards racial and gender equity were just beginning. In many ways it was new territory. There weren't any rule books or procedures. Basil was an important part of that process that continues today. He was a caring person and will be well remembered.
