This beautiful depiction from the Oscar-winning movie, The Godfather, is made up of thousands of letters and words. In fact, every word from the script! It was created entirely by hand and it took artist, Rick Almanzan, over 300 hours to complete. Zoom in and take a closer look!

Check out how Canada Goose’s goodwill was built through grassroots marketing and a bit of old-fashioned made-in-Canada style envy. Proud Canadians!

Financial Post | Business

Under the stewardship of chief executive Dani Reiss since 2001, Toronto-based Canada Goose Inc. has grown close to 4,000% and become the country’s premier brand of outerwear. Mr. Reiss, whose grandfather, Sam Tick, founded the company in 1957, talked with the Financial Post‘s Hollie Shaw about how the brand goodwill was built through grassroots marketing and a bit of old-fashioned made-in-Canada style envy.

QHow did you take the Canada Goose brand to where it is today?

A When I started here our factory produced all kinds of stuff [and] we decided to focus on the Canada Goose [outerwear] part of the business and growing it around the world. When I got involved the product was worn by people who lived and worked in the coldest places on Earth, and that is still the case. The 21st century has become the era of the brand and in some cases…

Beat Nation, Mastering Tradition with Urban Youth

Celebrate Aboriginal Awareness Week (May22-25) with a visit to BEAT NATION.

Satellite Gallery Blog

by Janine C. Grant

"Indian" by Nicholas Galanin, Vancouver Art Gallery

The exhibition of Beat Nation begins even before you enter the Vancouver Art Gallery. Carved into the cement by the Hornby Street entrance, the stylized logo ‘Indians’ of the Cleveland Major League Baseball team physically imprints the sidewalk with new meaning.  Interweaving the history of Vancouver with contemporary re-appropriation, Nicholas Galanin’s piece sets the tone for the work found inside. In the past, the gallery building held the Land Title office of still un-ceded Coast Salish territory. The enlightening play between space, medium and meaning throughout the gallery presents re-interpretations of tradition and the lived experience of Aboriginal people today.

How small businesses can succeed during slow times

Financial Post | Business

If you run a small business, you are probably run you off your feet. And, that’s especially true during hard times.

In British Columbia, the majority of businesses are small — mom and pop shops of fewer than 50 people and micro-businesses, which have five or fewer employees. These businesses fight for survival during lean times and juggle cash-flow problems and expenses during the good times.

Either way, small business owners have to work hard to make it, especially when they don’t have deep pockets to begin with. However, there are ways to survive and even thrive. The key is focusing on what you can control.

So, rather than feel demoralized when hearing about the difficulties small businesses face, turn your attention to the aspects of your operation that you can change.

For example, contain costs by eliminating or reducing expenses. But do it strategically. Be sure your cost reductions…
