Based in the Co­mox Val­ley, free­lance writer Ryan Stu­art (“Go­ing With the Flow,” p.15) spends a lot of time in nearby Vic­to­ria and Tofino, which got him won­der­ing why those mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties dump raw sewage into the ocean while B.C. is be­com­ing a hub for waste­water treat­ment com­pa­nies. Stu­art is the field edi­tor at Ex­plore mag­a­zine and con­trib­utes to sev­eral other out­door ad­ven­ture pub­li­ca­tions.

Jes­sica Natale Wool­lard is a Vic­to­ria-based writer who cov­ers busi­ness and life­style for print and on­line mag­a­zines. In this is­sue, she ex­plores the ad­vent of slow fash­ion and the ways that B.C. com­pa­nies make sus­tain­able cloth­ing (“Un­com­mon­threads,” p.17). “Be­fore re­search­ing this ar­ti­cle, I didn't truly un­der­stand that syn­thetic fab­rics are plas­tic prod­ucts,” Wool­lard ex­plains. “Now I'm itchy just think­ing about it.”
