Windsor MP and activist Howard McCurdy remembered as a man who 'didn't back down'



Howard McCurdy is being remembered as a man who never backed down from anything.

The civil rights activist was the second black member of Parliament in Canada — the first for the New Democratic Party — and the first tenured black professor in Canadian history. McCurdy died Tuesday at the age of 85.

He was named to the Order of Ontario and designated a member of the Order of Canada in 2012.
