Soulful Duo Shea and Jacob

The soulful rock sound of Shea and Jacob.


It has been awhile since we have done a Tunes For Tuesday, hasn't it?

The rise in young talent around the world proves that you don't have to be a seasoned performer or pay your dues to be appreciated.

Take for example the young Nanaimo duo, Shea and Jacob. They are two very talented singer songwriters, already writing and performing their own music at the tender ages of 15 and 16. Say what?!


Government In Negotiations With Mars Bombers

Communities pressure government to bring back our Bombers.

Finally! The government is finally listening to the people of British Columbia! Our BC government sited the high cost of operating the Mars Bombers as the reason their contract was not renewed.

Now that they have blown through their $63 million budget (the cost of fighting fires in BC is already at $80 million), the government is in negotiations to bring back our beloved Mars Bombers.

The Kindness Of Strangers

Tarita's Travel Connections

I received a call out of the blue a couple of days ago from a kind woman by the name of Tarita Davenock. She had heard about our MS fundraising event Hanne's Hope! Spring Fling, and felt compelled to call.

We had a lovely chat, sharing experiences. As someone who lives with MS, Tarita could relate to and was moved by my sister Hanne's story. Then she astonished me with a very generous offer!
