Download Flash Player to view this content.

Jim Green passed away on February 28, 2012. On April 14, the public is invited to celebrate his life and his legacy in a memorial service at the Orpheum Theatre, including musical performances. Doors open at 12:30 pm, service begins at 1:30 pm. RSVP here.

Geoff Meggs will be one of the MC's. Green's longtime friend and colleague walked us through the neighbourhood Green was most closely associated with, reflecting on how the longtime advocate changed the city.

The music in the short piece above is from the Bughouse Five (one of Jim Green's favourite rockabilly bands) and Verdi's Nabucco (opera was one of his passions). You'll find a longer version of the interview below.
