West coast legend Arthur Erickson passed away today in Vancouver. I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to put into words what it was like to spend time with him, but I do know he will be missed by many and his work will live on. We had the privilege of meeting Arthur earlier this year. The night started with countless rounds of Japanese Robata and Sake ending in a magical tour of his garden. It’s like the man was operating on a higher level yet he was so connected to what was happening at that moment. Thank you for everything you’ve done for the West Coast and Canada.
