CAMPBELL, Jim
Anarchist, prison activist, hippie, partner, friend, son, brother, uncle. Born November 20, 1949, in Shelburne, Ontario Died September 17, 2007, in Maynooth, Ontario, of a heart attack, aged 57.
By Richard SWIFT and Julie THIERS, Page L6
Jim was born the fourth of six children on a family farm near Orangeville, Ontario He always loved hard work - he used to wake up early to feed the animals before heading off to a one-room schoolhouse.
Jim was the first in his family to attend university, studying math at the University of Waterloo. Although a bright student, he was drawn to the idealism of the Sixties. He became a hippie, organizing food co-ops, student housing co-ops and countless other projects. In 1978, 11 students bought a 250-acre farm in eastern Ontario and started one of several hippie communes in the Bancroft area, Dragonfly farm, which still operates.
Jim eventually moved to Toronto. His primary passion was prison work. He wrote regularly to inmates and developed magazines written by prisoners seeking a voice from inside institutions in Canada and the United States.
Jim was also involved in the anarchist movement, always busy doing mailings, organizing events and writing. His tiny, one-bedroom apartment in a downtown Toronto housing co-op was the site of many of his vegetarian meals and meetings of left-wing activists.
Jim returned to regular contact with his family a decade ago. He often teased (or was teased by) his four sisters, and loved to visit his 90-year-old mother Ivadell, whose sharp wit and memory no offspring can rival.
Jim was proud that his mother led five generations of family, and always showed the photos of all five generations to visiting Friends.
Although a hippie and an anarchist, Jim moved seamlessly between divergent worlds. Occasionally he could be spotted in his City of Toronto uniform, surprising his political Friends.
He worked for 25 years as a garbage collector, bridge maintenance worker, water meter reader and finally supervisor. His Friends and colleagues speak of his humour, clumsiness, ability to see problems from many perspectives, and fairness to workers.
After 25 years of activism, Jim decided to settle down. He found the love of his life, Julie, and they planned for retirement in their log house on 40 acres of bush near Algonquin Park. Jim loved his vegetable garden, chopping firewood, hiking, snowshoeing and cutting new walking trails.
One day, while cycling with Julie, he suddenly fell off his bicycle. His heart could not be revived. Perhaps it had done enough work already.
Jim will be remembered for his keen intelligence, big laugh and gummy smile, his long, lanky body, ability to find humour in any situation, kindness to anyone on the outside and dedication to social justice.
Richard SWIFT is Jim's friend and neighbour and Julie THIERS is Jim's partner.

He will be fondly remembered by his good Friends Ian and Sheila McKILLOP, and also all the many Friends he made at Tim Horton's on Colborne Road.
