Shirley Douglas passes away aged 86

It is Cult Faction’s sad duty to report that Canadian activist and actor Shirley Douglas has passed away at the age of 86 years old. The sad news was broken by her son actor Kiefer Sutherland on his twitter account:

Sutherland was the daughter of Medicare founder Tommy Douglas; growing up she was involved with the Friends of the Black Panthers; a fund raising organization. In 1969 she was arrested for conspiracy to possess explosives. She had attempted to buy hand grenades for the Black Panthers. She spent five days in jail for the hand grenade incident and was subsequently denied a work permit and was forced to return to Canada. She had a long acclaimed acting career with many roles including Lolita, Dead Ringers, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Street Legal, Passage of the Heart, Ultraforce, Flash Gordon, Silver Surfer, Barney’s Great Adventure, Franklin, Wind At My Back, and Degrassi: The Next Generation.
