The sudden passing of
Tooker Gomberg leaves
us all saddened and contemplative.
One of Canada's most daring and
courageous political figures, Tooker
was a friend, co-conspirator and
guiding light to so many of us.
A selfless trailblazer, Tooker's
absence will be felt in the
social justice, human rights,
arts, and music communities
in Canada and around the world.
We invite you to join in reflection,
mourning and celebration of such an
exemplary writer, activist, politician,
videographer, public speaker and
advocate for a better world.
