Mr.Truant taught for almost 30 years in District 57, first in Mackenzie then in Prince George.

"He was more than a teacher, he was a mentor he was a friend and I really miss him. I am who I am today because he believed in me," said Brunn at PGSS.
"In our profession we always say that teaching is about relationship, more about relationship and less about curriculum and Vince just had a way to connect with kids. He established great relationships with students and the students absolutely adored him," said Kap Manhas, PGSS Principal.
It is believed Mr Truant passed away from complications from heart issues, and now he's left the hearts broken of former students, co-workers and family members who are now hoping to raise money in his memory. A goal of $50,000 for The Vince Truant S...

Nanaimo remembers educator, activist and elder 'Auntie Ellen' - Nanaimo News BulletinWednesday, March 27, 2019
Ellen White, Kwulasulwut, died Tuesday at age 95, and her funeral was held Saturday morning at the Beban Park Social Centre.
White was a member of the Order of Canada and the Order of British Columbia and her obituary remembers her as an "educator, cultural knowledge keeper, author, linguist, herbalist, healer, traditional midwife, and political activist and advocate."
She was one of the founders of the Tillicum Haus Aboriginal Friendship Centre and was an elder-in-residence in Vancouver Island University's First Nations studies program.
"She possessed a pure, kind and radiant heart," said Les Malbon, who described himself as one of White's adopted grandchildren as he delivered her eulogy Saturday.
White's name, Kwulasulwut, translates to ‘many stars' and Malbon alluded to that as he addressed the people gathered in the social centre.
"I look out now and I see the many stars," he said. "I see how she impacted the community. I see how much she loved her family and I appreciated, personally, how much that love changed me and how it's changed all of us to be better people and behoove us to be kind to one another and to work towards a world of unity."
Malbon said the White home was always filled with visitors, and Ellen White also travelled to meet people and sh...
