British Columbian Travel: Going Coastal
John Lee

It’s 8:30 p.m. when the dented, steel-grey carriages of the Skeena, the VIA Rail train serving the northern route from Jasper, begin their final wheezing crawl into Prince Rupert, the rainfall capital of Canada’s multi-fjorded Wet Coast.

Jessica Werb

A forestry and pulp-and-paper exec (she was senior VP at Norske Skogindustrier and president of Fletcher Canada’s pulp operations before that) with no prior health-care experience overseeing an authority with 24,500 employees and a $2-billion-plus budget? “Ridiculous,” Jean Smith, then-executive...

Workplace Harassment: Mob Mentality
Vicki O’Brien

In the space of a year, Sheila went from being on the A-list at work to being isolated, singled out for criticism and branded as “trouble.” Like most targets of workplace bullying, the 45-year-old university instructor did not immediately realize she was facing a concerted campaign of emotional abuse by her superiors, women she once trusted and considered friends and mentors.

Small Business, Big Lessons
Peter Severinson

The blue chips grab headlines, but it’s the small and medium-sized businesses that make B.C.’s economy buzz. Compared to the rest of the country (per capita), B.C. has the fastest-growing small business sector and the second-largest number of small businesses.

David Mowat: Gored
Andrew Findlay

I’m sitting in the executive reception at Vancity’s corporate headquarters on the corner of Main and First, waiting for CEO Dave Mowat.
