It was a shock to learn of the sudden death of Paul Beingessner in a farm accident this week. I met Paul last summer in Regina when we sat side-by-side on a panel discussion of sustainable local food production. He was a passionate and innovative activist for the rural way of life. His death at 55 reminds us the end may come at any moment, and if we are to leave our mark on the planet, we must start now. Paul's work was not done, but I do hope others will fill the void and speak as loudly and passionately as he has done. Read the newspaper acticle here.
