Rowlands died in her sleep at a long-term care facility in downtown Toronto on December 21, 2017, aged 93.
Toronto Mayor John Tory offered his condolences, and flags at Toronto City Hall, Metro Hall and other civic centres were lowered to half-mast until December 29, 2017.
June Rowlands Park, formerly Davisville Park, was renamed in 2004 in recognition for her dedication to the City of Toronto. Located on the northwest corner of Davisville Avenue and Mount Pleasant Road (within her old Ward 10), the park is the recreational hub of the area, with a baseball diamond, the children’s playground in the names of Sharon, Lois and Bram, and a wading pool. The Davisville Tennis Club operates six courts along the north side of the park on Millwood Road.
After one term in office, Rowlands was defeated in 1994 by Barbara Hall, and retired from politics.
Rowlands was elected mayor in 1991 after a campaign that focused on law and order. The election began with a group of three centre-right women: Rowlands, Susan Fish, and Betty Disero. The left was mostly unified behind City Councillor Jack Layton. Eventually, right wing support coalesced around Rowlands, and she was elected by a two-to-one margin over Layton after the withdrawal of her fellow female candidates.
Rowlands is commonly associated with a 1991 incident in which the emerging Toronto pop group Barenaked Ladies was barred from performing at the city’s annual New Year’s Eve show at Nathan Phillips Square on the grounds that the group’s name objectified women. Rowlands maintained that the decision was taken by city staff in the Protocol Office, not herself.
Rowlands remained on both Metro and Toronto City Councils until the 1988 municipal election in which she did not run but accepted an appointment as Chair of the Police Commission. In 1991, she left the commission after being replaced as commissioner by Susan Eng.
Rowlands was elected to Toronto City Council in 1976. She served as the junior alderman for Ward 10 covering Rosedale and part of North Toronto. In 1978, she topped the vote in her ward becoming its senior alderman with the added duty of sitting on Metro Council. In the 1980s, as a Metro Councillor, she was appointed to sit in the Toronto Transit Commission becoming the first woman member of that body. She attempted to enter federal politics by running for the Liberal Party of Canada in the 1984 federal election. She ran in the suburban riding of York—Scarborough, far from her electoral base in the old City of Toronto, and was defeated by Progressive Conservative Paul McCrossan.
