My best memory so far is the very warm welcome that I got from my new colleagues here at VCH.

I married my wife in Pemberton during the summer of the Pemberton wildfires. Luckily the smoke dispersed before our backyard wedding took place.

Biking to work. It is healthy for the environment, healthy for our air quality, healthy for my pocket book, and healthy for me.
