Bud Osborn: in memoriam (May 2014)

We are sad to report that Bud Osborn, the unofficial poet laureate of the Vancouver's Downtown Eastside, has passed away. Bud was a passionate poet and advocate for the dispossessed, and the Downtown Eastside will sorely miss his presence.

A longer remembrance of Bud can be found on our blog, Arsenalia. As well, Vancouver MP Libby Davies shares her thoughts about Bud's passing with CBC Radio's Rick Cluff, which you can access here.

Our condolences go out to his loved ones.
