It was recently announced that the winner of season six of the hit reality cooking series, Hell’s Kitchen (featuring Chef Gordon Ramsay), will receive the coveted Head Chef position at Whistler’s Araxi restaurant.

Interview with Todd Hallowell

May 13th, 2009 @ 7:04pm by Rebecca Bollwitt

A little while ago I had the delightful chance to interview Todd Hallowell, the Executive Producer and Second-Unit Director of recent films like Frost/Nixon and the upcoming Angels & Demons. Since Frost/Nixon was just released on DVD that was the focus of our chat yet we also discussed various other projects and the fact that […]

Mary McNeil Candidate Interview Vancouver False-Creek

May 11th, 2009 @ 6:46pm by Rebecca Bollwitt

In April I did three candidate interviews in one day, covering Vancouver West-End and Vancouver-Hastings and I thought those would be my last. Three more interviews later and I’m falling behind on content, as expected. I was however able to meet up with Mary McNeil, the BC Liberal candidate for Vancouver False-Creek so here are […]

Premier Gordon Campbell Guest Blog

May 4th, 2009 @ 1:30pm by Rebecca Bollwitt

I had the opportunity to interview Premier Gordon Campbell a little while ago although unfortunately our schedules couldn’t match up to make it actually happen. As such, the Premier took some time to answer a few questions for my readers (some of the questions were sourced from my Twitter contacts as well).

Drina Read Candidate Interview

April 27th, 2009 @ 7:14pm by Rebecca Bollwitt

While discussing her campaign over a mango smoothie on Davie Street I realized that it was probably Drina who got me started with all of these interviews back in the fall. Drina Read is the Green Party of BC candidate for Vancouver West-End and being a long-time resident she’s very passionate about her community as […]

I ventured outside of the downtown core to meet up with Haida Lane, the BC Liberal candidate for Vancouver-Hastings. “I’ve always had a passion for politics,” said Haida who start campaigning later in the game since the untimely passing of candidate Andrew Mak. “Given the opportunity and the need, I knew that this community could […]
