On March 3, 2004, one of Canada’s most daring and courageous political figures, Tooker Gomberg, left this world. Two years later, his friends and admirers are left wondering why, and what can we learn. We invite you to join in reflection, mourning and celebration of such an exemplary writer, activist, politician, public speaker and advocate for a better world. See http://www.greenspiration.org to learn more of Tooker’s life and his contributions to environmental sustainability across Canada and around the world.
For three decades, Tooker tirelessly advocated for safer cycling facilities, and for an end to auto-cracy. He passionately and skillfully articulated an attractive vision of urban life that put 2 wheels ahead of 4. Even as a City Councillor in Edmonton he rode his bicycle everywhere.
