Welcome to Haiku Canada

News


Sadly, physician and Haiku Canada co-founder, Dr. Eric Amann died on the 12th of March, 2016, after suffering a stroke. “There was no formal announcement of his death”, retired physician and early co-worker, Jacqueline Carleson, informed Haiku Canada. Carleson and Amann were in residency together at St. Paul’s Hospital, in Vancouver, in the early 80’s. On July 7th, 2016, friends gathered at Mount Pleasant Cemetery, Toronto, to honour the memory and acknowledge the accomplishments of Dr. Eric Amann. A small reception followed; his ashes were scattered in the forest designated area.
George Swede attended the Mount Pleasant gathering and will give an honourarium at the Haiku Canada weekend in Mississauga, May, 2017.
In haiku friendship,
