Moishe "Two-Gun" Cohen was one of historic Edmonton's most extraordinary and colourful Jewish characters, a land shark who made a fortune during the land rush of 1912-1913, an advocate for Edmonton's Chinese community and the co-organizer of the 218th Irish Guards - and who would go on to be a hero of the Chinese Revolution. Join Senator Paula Simons as she leads a Jane's Walk urban walking tour down Jasper Avenue East, past the sites of some of Cohen's haunts...and past the places Edmonton's early Jewish community called home.

Admission is free, but people are asked to pre-register on Eventbrite at the Jane's Walk webpage
