Bridges

I hadn’t mentioned Spalding Gray’s suicide because I knew others out there would cover it better than I could. However, I was surprised to read of the presumed suicide of activist Tooker Gomberg whom authorities believe jumped off Halifax’s Angus L. Macdonald bridge. Gomberg was an Edmonton city councillor and an advocate for the rights of urban cyclists. He also ran for mayor against Mel Lastman in Toronto. Municipal politics won’t be as lively without him.

There is a discussion about Gomberg on the Babble message boards.
