Name: Larry Elaschuk

Occupation: teacher/barista

Age: 70

Hometown: Cobble Hill (originally Calgary)

If you get a chance see: I loved the Sherlock Holmes movies

Right now I am reading: Shock Doctrine by Naomi Klein

I’m listening to: I’m an old folkie who likes Canadian artists like Corb Lund and Valdy

At least once everyone should: fish in the ocean and the Cowichan River

Most people don’t know I: am a potter and a painter

Proudest or happiest moment: birth of my two sons

Biggest fear: failing in our business venture

If I was appointed king of the valley I would: make Vancouver Island a separate province, like PEI

Before I die: I want to go back to those places in Europe I visited many years ago with my wife

Words I live by: do your best
