BCAA Spring Summer 2021 Cover  

Spring Summer 2021 Edition

The cover story of our Spring/Summer 2021 BCAA Magazine focuses on the topic of distracted driving - a behaviour far too many of us are guilty of on BC roads. We debunk what constitutes distracted driving, how our brains are affected by it, and the fines you can face if caught. The Split Focus cover artwork for this issue was commissioned from Canadian artist Cornelia Li and zeroes in on a driver attempting to multitask behind the wheel in an exaggerated way – illustrating that we can’t, and shouldn’t, try to ‘do it all’ while driving. Learn more about distracted driving and road safety here.

Also in this issue, we look at buying and selling a home during the pandemic: in BC’s red-hot real estate market, what you should know, emerging trends, and points you may want to consider as you look to change up your space. Plus, whether for a side-hustle or because we’re working remotely, we offer tips for functional yet efficient desks in The Corner Home Office.

Finally, in our BC Spotlight, we look to the community of Lund on the northern Sunshine Coast, where Indigenous owned resorts offer a soft place to lay your head after a day of exploring the beauty of Desolation Sound (but not before you nourish yourself at one of the local eateries offering fresh-baked and fresh-caught goodness!).
