Vancouver Councillor Jim Green's 62nd Birthday at the Vancouver Law Courts Gallery

May 22, 2005

By Catherine Barr


He's a champion of the homeless, father of six, master of anthropology and one of Vancouver's favourite Americans. Last weekend, Vancouver Coun. Jim Green turned 62 with a big bluesy bash at the Vancouver Law Courts. Musicians, supporters and guests raised a glass to the indomitable Eastside bad-hatter himself at the "You Can Leave Your Hat On" birthday jam.
