We will be setting up a one day public space memorial on Whyte Ave in honour of Isaak Kornelsen.

Isaak’s life was tragically cut short on August 27, 2012, at the age of 21 while cycling on Whyte Avenue. The parklet is designed to symbolize various aspects of Isaak’s life, and the ideals he upheld. By portraying these ideals we aim to inspire people to think more deeply about the world they live in, and to leave with a renewed yearning to discover and experience what the world has to offer.
