It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Rick Lavallie earlier this month. Ricky, as he was known to many in the Vancouver, continually blessed us with his musical talent, storytelling and his genuine and caring heart. Ricky was very active in many social and environmental justice movements in Vancouver for many years; whether it was residential schools, the downtown eastside, anti-olympics, wild salmon and oil-tankers he lead with his creative talent in raising people's consciousness. We will miss his live musical performances and radiant personality on the steps of the Vancouve Art Gallery, but his spirit lives with many of us forever.
Thank you Ricky, we love you and will miss you.
