I have used many pictures and articles to produce biographies and to show some pictorial record of the period of time or person/station being written about.


Copyright laws in Canada are to be followed however some pictures are from old books, old websites, personal collections and no info has been filtered through a lawyer.

This website is dedicated to


Maurice P. Finnerty who plucked me out of BCIT and made me a star,
Al Erdman, engineer at CJOR
and Jack Cullen of the Owl Prowl
who inspired me with the words
"to be a good historian you must steal a bit"
