on missing Trevor Sellars

by Al

Trevor Franklin Sellars, my business partner (and sometime fishing buddy) for 15 years, passed away yesterday. It is hard to imagine a world without him. His was a big presence — he took up space, made noise, was active, got people organized, moved ideas forward. Twenty years ago, when he…

#blackoutbeers

by Neil Stephen

It’s 11:30pm, things go dark. Power’s out. First step — call my wife. Check that— she’s already calling me. Power’s out at home too? Ok. Hmmm, interesting, wonder how big this is.

Why should someone love Whitehorse?

by Eleanor

Why is it so difficult to write blog posts in the summer in the north? Lots of reasons. I want to get your thoughts on that in a moment. It's Autumn now and my fingers are feeling more inspired to write about branding—must be the cooler weather (?) The shift…

#CTVFAIL

by Neil Stephen

It’s fair to say the flashy CTV Olympic studios and young hosts certainly helped bring a new energy to those 2010 Vancouver Olympics.
