  1. Malcolm Lowry’s incredible book Under the Volcano. John, you came to my wedding in Dawson many years ago and gave me as a wedding present one of my most valued pieces of art. Strange that Barbara and I went on to live in the cabin on Gabriola Island where Lowry lived. It is there he wrote October Ferry to Gabriola. I’m going to buy a few of your woodcuts. I am a big fan of prints. Phillips, Bergmann, etc. You hang on my wall with them now. Happy to know you John. Pat Martin.

  2. Great to hear from you Pat! Long time no see! I’m a big fan of your hard work as a parliamentarian keeping everyone honest. Can’t wait for you to form our next government!

So great if you could take a minute and leave your thoughts on this.
