MagsBC let go of executive director Sylvia Skene and discontinued the position. President Jenn Farrell cited provincial and federal funding cuts and a trend toward funding projects, rather than operations. Skene's administrative and project management duties will be assumed by board members and other volunteers.
Two of Village Living's newest team members have acting bugs. Karen Cliche (Flash Gordon, Mutant X, Saw VI) was brought on as account executive, and Joy Tanner (Degrassi: TNG, House at the End of the Street, Skins) was added as a cultural writer. Frances Du also joined the team, as features editor. Her writing has appeared in Traveler's Digest and SHE Canada magazine.
Aaron Kylie was appointed senior editor at Canadian Geographic. He moves over from the Canadian Wildlife Federation, where he oversaw Canadian Wildlife, Biosphere and WILD, as editorial director.
Drew Nelles is stepping down as editor-in-chief at Maisonneuve. He will be vacating his role in a few months and leaving Montreal for New York. He joined the mag in 2009 and became editor-in-chief in 2011.
Carl Dow is no longer editor of Humanist Perspectives. The mag has returned to a rotating editorial board with Henry Beissel, Madeline Weld and Richard Young taking turns at the wheel.
