from a environment e-news letter
It is with great sadness that I report that Tooker Gomberg,
writer, politician and environmentalist, is missing and
All indications are that he took his life on March 4th.
He leaves behind his partner, Angela Bischoff.
Originally from Montreal, Tooker spent time in Edmonton
and Toronto before moving to Halifax in 2003. Tooker was
an inspired writer, activist and green crusader. He touched
the lives of many -- through his Greenspiration project, his
remarkable mayoral campaign in Toronto, and many many
other projects and writings.
