November 20th featuring Bruce Hornidge ( Alberni Valley ) Janet V. Miller (Comox Valley)
Bruce E Hornidge Born 1948 in Ontario to military parents. I went in 1967 to logging at Kennedy Lake Division at Ucluelet BC, to road building 3 years then warehouse for 2 years. I broke in falling trees 1972 to 1998. I endured the Clayoquot Sound anti logging protests of 1993. Due to regulation and costs to log all employees were terminated in 1998. I am writing a book on my career which is to reflect the logging we were trying to accomplish. I will speak of the protests from a logger’s perspective and the resulting trauma of job loss. This is a story not readily known. I am working on a murder novel and war novels. My feature reading will be my visit to the battlefield of Dieppe in 1999. Thankyou.
Janet V. Miller makes her home on Vancouver Island to be close to the ocean. Her children’s book Cross My Heart was published in 2002.
