Miro Cirnetig pens an appreciation of Jim Green and his devotion to opera, along with this suggestion:

So isn’t it time to name a public place in Vancouver’s inner city for Jim Green?

Perhaps Pigeon Park or Crab Park, those green spaces he fought to preserve because he knows they are crucial to a good life in the city’s poorest neighborhood. Maybe Green’s name should be on a street or lane way. Or the square of the new Woodward’s building, the edifice Green helped make a reality and is now a catalyst for the Downtown Eastside’s revitalization without forgetting its less wealthy residents.
