It's Day 114 of the month-long lockdown that Ontario's been under and I've decided, finally, to amass many of the stories I scattered around the media over the last decade. Why? Well you've probably noticed that stuff's been falling apart lately. How can I trust publishers to save my stuff if I don't do the same?
So anyway: Last spring a luxury 3-day all-expenses-paid trip to British Columbia fell from the sky. I got word that I'd be going on the Wednesday night and the flight left Friday morning. I was just getting over the (below mentioned) shingles and was ready for some fun. The trip included 4 nights in Fairmont hotels with all the indulgences you can imagine sandwiched into the days. Everything from a private aerial tour of the Sunshine Coast in an ancient Cessna, to zip-lining down one of those toothy Whistler mountains after consuming several gallons of sushi.
Published in ViCARious Magazine, the link below take you to one of my favourite stories from last year. (Normally I'd just co-publish here my site but Jeff Voth at ViCARious employs a superior art director. Welcome to yet another new normal.)
Look for the reference to my old friend Kirstie Lang, aka activist Sally Buck: VICARIOUS007_StevenBochenek_BMW
