For The Earth - David Orton (1934-2011)
David’s death occurred on the morning of Thursday, May 12th,
2011 at his home in Watervale, Pictou County. David was born in Portsmouth,
England on January 6th, 1934. He lived in Canada since 1957. David
was an activist and deep green philosopher, who dedicated his life to
developing the theory of Left Biocentrism within the Deep Ecology movement. He
was uncompromising in his fight for the Earth and set a high standard for
others to follow. David believed in living simply, where the richness of human
life was defined not in material values, but within a deeper spiritual
relationship with the Earth.
A green burial will take place at a later date.
