A Hard Goodbye - Dave Abbey

Dave Abbey

It’s with incredible sorrow that I’m writing to let you know about the passing of another legendary Saskatchewan Green. Dave Abbey passed away suddenly of aspiration pneumonia yesterday (May 24. 2024). He had his family by his side and listened to his favourite song, "Last Night I Had the Strangest Dream". We will carry on to make his dream come true. His wife Carol called to let us know. There will be no service and he has chosen cremation.

Honouring David Greenfield 1967-2024

Our friend Dave Greenfield, former Saskatchewan Green Party and Green Party of Canada candidate, member of the executive of the SGP, and Saskatchewan representative on the Federal Council of the Green Party of Canada, died on Thursday, April 18, 2024, after a lengthy hospitalization. He will live on in our hearts as a man dedicated to the environment, social justice and peace. He pursued these passions through activism in political, civic, and religious groups, including the Council of Canadians, Canadian Friends Service Committee, Climate Justice Saskatoon and the Saskatoon Peace Coalition. He will be remembered as a defender of the rights and dignity of our disabled and disadvantaged brothers and sisters.

In the month of May a coincidence of birthdays has led me to reflect on the story of two individuals from different time periods who died in the cause of peace: Albert Ginger Goodwin and Fernando Pereira. Both were born on May 10th, in the years of 1887 and 1950 respectively, and both were martyred as a result of their activist work for peace.
