Guy Saddy has writ­ten for mag­a­zines like Satur­day Night, The Wal­rus, Travel + Leisure, en­route and Elle on top­ics from trans­mis­sion rates on the Down­town Eastside to run­ning over him­self with his own car. Van­cou­ver-based Saddy's lat­est fea­ture, on his city's prop­erty mar­ket (“Af­ter the Crash and Other Night­mares,” p.30), was chal­leng­ing. “When it comes to hous­ing prices, there's so much at stake,” he says. “How­ever this shakes out, we're at a cross­roads now, that's for sure.”

Vic­to­ria pho­tog­ra­pher Nik West was born in New Zealand and moved to Canada at 13 but has also lived in Aus­tralia and Mex­ico. In this is­sue he shot im­ages for two sto­ries: “Har­bour­ing Am­bi­tions” (p.42), about up-and-com­ing Nanaimo; and “All fory­acht” (p.123), a Week­end War­rior pro­file of Cube Global Stor­age founder Mike We­ston. “We took the boat out for a short jaunt,” West re­calls. “It was all pretty easy­go­ing.”
