In honour of International Sea Lion Dental Hygiene Week, we are delighted to feature our September cover Steller sea lion who has more gaps and spaces in his smile than the  Canucks’ puck-blocking star defenceman, Chris Tanev.

This month’s cover, Easter…the less serious side…chocolate bunnies, Easter eggs, jelly beans and whatever other Easter treats are the centre of childhood delight in your family on Easter.

Don’t ask how the date of Easter is determined because I don’t think anyone really...

Ah, springtime on Pender Island!  Officially, spring 2018 rolls onto our island on March 20 at 4:33 am. I have no idea who decides this stuff, but at 4:33 am, we can be confident that spring does not arrive by ferry.  As long as we are being so precise as to the arriva...
