Jamie Reid was a steadfast supporter of TCR and of all local and shoestring budget poetry endeavours. We salute Jamie as a major figure on the Vancouver poetry scene since the early sixties.

George Bowering: "Jamie Reid's declaration 'I have always believed in poetry as a local and collective art' is a heartfelt aesthetic, and promises to be a generative principle in this time during which we do not have anywhere near enough belief operating for the production of poetry."
