Oh, sleep come for me…

“The Maureen and George Basil Award”


It was a lovely evening, the School of Business Awards Ceremony, with a very deserving award winner, Danica Sladen, a former student of mine whose Human Resources practicum was successful indeed. That’s Wayne Tebb, Dean of the School of Business, and a very cool friend of mine, on the left.

I have funded the award since 2005 to honour my parents, really good people who have always supported education.

“Peace of Pai”


My friend Kat Kosiancic is writing about her travels through Thailand. I love her writing. Right now she’s living in the bungalow pictured above in the town of Pai.

Kwantlen Agonistes

Christopher Poon describes for The Surrey Now what is sure to become a kerfuffle at my university. Bring on the lawyers, again. (Mr. Poon, by the way, is a Kwantlen journalism graduate who was the inaugural winner of the John Reiss Award in Journalism, an annual prize I fund in honour of a good friend of mine.)
