The Cheshire cat grin and wisecrack-a-minute style of Jim Taylor is familiar to virtually any sports fan in B.C. over the ae of 30.

The longtime columnist for the Vancouver Sun and Province scribed at virtually every sporting event of note for our province’s baby boom generation — from Paul Henderson’s goal to the Wayne Gretzky trade.

He carved a career that gives him a legitimate claim to the title of B.C.’s greatest living sportswriter.

Taylor may have faded from the public eye in the past decade, but you don’t put a stopper on that kind of creative energy.

He’s retired to Shawnigan Lake, and still full of strong opinions and sharp wit.

He shares both in a lengthy one-on-one interview with Maeve Maguire in the latest edition of Station magazine.

It’s the cover story of your spring edition of Cowichan’s deluxe lifestyles magazine, which will be delivered to select Cowichan homes and businesses today.

In the same issue we also take you behind the scenes at Cowichan’s home of natural beauty, Wedderspoon Organic, share the culture shock of a Cowichan woman’s new life in Britain and explore the emerging practice of water birth.

Look for your copy at dozens of shops and business throughout the Cowichan Valley.
