David Mowat: Gored

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

Middle East Travel: Currying Flavour

A man pushes through the fray and introduces himself as Mandar Singh, the owner of the horse. Apparently, he’s planning to fetch 25,000 rupees (roughly $5,000) for the virile Marwari stud. Men, some obviously making mental calculations, stare at the horse in silence. The animal is about as unattainable to...

Water Privatization: Tapped

Is it possible for water, a substance that eschews arbitrary political borders and respects only those prescribed by topography and the forces of nature, to be owned and commodified?

Crown Land Tenure: Trouble in the Backcountry

Miners and loggers used to pose the greatest trouble to backcountry and wilderness travel, now with the B.C. Liberals allowing more crown land to be tenured, the enemy comes from within. Some blame the competition, others blame the government, but all agree there’s a $1-billion industry at stake.
