Well Sheila it's finally here. Twenty Four years, or there abouts, after I first met you people can finally have a joint in peace and even grow a few plants if they want. You had so many causes and this is only one, but it's another off the list.

I wish you were here to see it.
Sheila and her compassion will sorely be missed in this world. Sheila was in touch with "wrongfully convicted" Kevin MacKinnon and she gave him hope by including him on her website. God Bless and rest in peace.
I didn't know that there were two Sheila Steele. Your Sheila spoke out about Stephan C and the other Sheila spoke out about Steven Truscott, her cousin and friend. Life is so strange, isn't it. Now one of them is sad.
Tonight Court TV aired a show called "Innocence". A man by the name of Stephan Cowan was wrongly convicted of shooting a Boston, MA police officer. He spent seven years behind bars for a crime that was proved he did not commit. To me this man, his Dear Mother that passed away while he was locked up, and his family that endured the ordeal and stands by him, are heros to be admired.
By Googleing his name, I found out about Sheila. Now she is one of my heros too. She has touched my life without my even having had the benefit of meeting her. How refreshing to witness the good things that come from troubled times, thanks to people like Sheila Rose Steele. A Guardian Angel for us all.
I never met her, but she must have been a real good woman who worked tirelessly for Justice. May she rest in peace.
I was first told about injusticebusters when I volunteered to make the website for NORML Saskathewan, it was the first link I was told to put on the links page. As an activist, I've found the Injusticebusters site to be an invaluable tool, and Sheila Steele has been an inspiration. She stepped up to help anyone who needed it, facing off against a government and legal system that is completely out of the public's control. I never got to meet her in person, I wish I had. I've turned to Injusticebusters for news I can't get anywhere else for about 10 years. I hope someone keeps it going.
I would like to say thank you to all the friends of and Flickr who registered tributes to Sheila Steele online. She was my first daughter and an only child for five years. As the eldest she was heir to all mistakes that new parents make. We fought our way through her troubled teens as Sheila challenged one platitude after another.

So went her life. In the 1990's injusticebusters was born out of the injustices inflicted on Richard Klassen and family. We would all like to believe that our legal system is interested only in the dissemination of justice. Not so. It must be held accountable. Am I right in thinking injusticebusters did at times straighten the crooked road?

My witty, intelligent, brash and compassionate daughter is gone and I'm very grateful for the 63 plus years that she was my friend and mentor. She would have felt so gratified at knowing how many hearts she reached because often she felt very much alone.
I am honestly, speachless. I just recieved the news of Madam Steele's passing. I am greatly honored to have known Sheila for she was an extremely intelligent and beautiful person. From the time I knew her and was around her she was nothing but admirable and helpful. I have never met a woman with more knowledge, more compassion, or more capabilities. I still remember the time when I was about 15 yrs old and I no place to go I went to Sheila's place which I think was the Capri at the time and she welcomed me with open arms. I enjoyed knowing her and will always admire her life and her work. My thoughts and prayers are always with Sheila and her family.
There are few words which could convey the generosity and brilliance Sheila Steele emparted to the world with her mere presence. May her legacy inspire future activists, her dreams of justice propel others to her actions, and her family and friends be blessed with wonderful memories.
I really didn't know Sheila that well, but I do know that pioneer work such as what she did takes a lot of guts and effort, especially in this society where there are so many people who don't get the justice they deserve. My heartfelt condolences to all Sheila's family. Her spirit will live on as we move forward.
