Life Story & Timeline

2003

In the fall of 2003, Lill announced that she would not be running in the next federal election. She revealed that she had been suffering from the effects of multiple sclerosis for the past three years.

2000

Lill ran in Dartmouth, a riding that contains everything from an industrial harbourfront and urban downtown to burgeoning suburban neighbourhoods and rural villages such as Cherrybrook and the Prestons that make up the country’s oldest African-Canadian community. As she knocked on doors, Lill found voters receptive. “The voters talk to me about exactly the same things the NDP have made issues in this campaign,” she said, adding that people feared for their jobs and were angry at losing government services in the cutbacks imposed by the federal Liberal government. On election day, the 46-year-old Lill surprised the pundits when she won the riding by a margin of more than 2,000 votes. She was re-elected in 2000, defeating former provincial cabinet ministers, Bernie Boudreau and Tom McInnis.

1998

After quitting her mental health job, Lill began working for a native newspaper, flying to remote reserves where she “spent a lot of time sleeping on floors in nursing stations.” Her experiences in northwestern Ontario changed her life. “I began to see the whole level of community relationships between natives and whites in the north, and the historical abuse of power, the racism,” she told a journalist in 1998. “It was the first time I had ever seen that, and I was shocked.” At age 26, Lill began writing stories based on her experiences—stories that would later form the basis for her one-woman play, The Occupation of Heather Rose.

1982

In 1982, her first play, On the Line was staged in Winnipeg. It was based on a strike by immigrant women working in the garment industry and has been variously described as one-sided and propagandistic. According to one account, Lill’s businessman father suggested that in successful drama, even the villains have to be real, a piece of advice that she apparently took to heart.

Lill met CBC producer, Richard Starr in Winnipeg and they married in 1982, moving east to Nova Scotia and New Brunswick before settling in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia with their sons Samuel and Joseph. Samuel has Down’s syndrome and both Lill and Starr are well known for their advocacy on behalf of people living with disabilities.

1981

Before writing her first produced play, On the Line, based on a strike by female garment workers in Manitoba, Lill worked as a journalist, documentary-maker and dramatist for CBC Radio in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Among other things, she covered a paper mill strike in Kenora, Ontario and produced documentaries for Our Native Land, a national, weekly program about Canada’s indigenous peoples. Her documentary Who is George Forest? and her radio drama Shorthanded won ACTRA Awards in 1981. Her screenplay Ikwe, about Métis women, was part of a National Film Board series which received a Golden Sheaf Award at the Yorkton Film Festival in 1986.

1979

Lill also worked as a journalist for CBC Radio in Winnipeg before moving to the Manitoba capital in 1979 where she produced radio documentaries for Our Native Land, a national, CBC Radio program about Canada’s indigenous peoples. One of her documentaries, Who is George Forest? won an ACTRA Award in 1981. Her radio drama, Shorthanded also won an ACTRA that same year.

Lill wrote her first play in 1979, On the Line, while still working for the CBC in Winnipeg. The play is about the strike by immigrant garment industry women workers in Winnipeg. Her next play was The Fighting Days (1985), examining the early days of the Canadian suffrage movement. Her monodrama The Occupation of Heather Rose (1987) is based on her experience in Northern Ontario. It speaks of a young white idealistic nurse who went to work on the Snake Lake Reservation. The play was nominated for a Governor General Award. Memories of You (1989) is about the controversial life of the female artist Elizabeth Smart. It was nominated for Chalmers Canadian Play Award. Sisters (1991) follows the events revolving around the burning of a residential school by a nun who worked at the school. All Fall Down (1994) is a story about the daycare worker who is charged with sexual abuse and all associated consequences. She also created a radio drama loosely based on her experience, Backbencher, that aired on CBC Radio One in 2010. The series was renewed by CBC for another 12 episodes, and the entire 20 episode series was broadcast on Radio One and the Sirius network in 2011.

1971

Wendy Lill was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, the daughter of Edwin Henry Lill and Margaret Galbraith Gordon. Her family moved to London, Ontario when she was five. She received a BA in Political Science from York University in 1971. After graduation, she toured Europe, worked as a cocktail waitress and began writing poetry. Anxious to get away from Toronto, Lill moved north to Kenora, Ontario in 1977 where she worked as a mental health consultant. “That was a silly job for me because I had no experience and I wasn’t that type of person,” Lill told an interviewer later. “But I did it for six months, basically trying to ascertain whether a Canadian Mental Health Association would be useful in Northern Ontario. Well, that’s sort of like saying, ‘Would an aspirin be useful in Bangladesh?'” Lill concluded there were already 44 associations in Kenora, none of them effective in dealing with the socio-economic problems that resulted in alcoholism and violence.

1970

Lill’s first formal political involvement came during the 1970s when she joined the NDP’s left-wing Waffle movement. In later years, she continued to work on behalf of the NDP doing everything from door-to-door canvassing to organizing fundraising events for the party. Alexa McDonough, the party’s federal leader asked Lill to run in the 1997 federal election. At the time, Lill had finished writing Corker, a play that shows how government spending cuts affect vulnerable people. “It’s about the same theme I always write about,” Lill told a local journalist, “the big divide between the elite and the street—and how if you don’t like what’s going on, you gotta change the world. I guess I decided it was time to see if I believed my own words.”
