Originally from the Caribbean nation of Trinidad and Tobago, Fry became a family physician who worked at St. Paul’s Hospital for 20 years after immigrating to Canada. Fry’s past posts in the healthcare field include president of the Vancouver Medical Association, B.C. Medical Association and the Federation of Medical Women.
The lone rookie MP to have defeated a sitting prime minister, Fry has passed her flare for politics onto her son Pete, who was elected to Vancouver council in 2018 under the Green Party banner.
