(Book Launch) Views of the Salish Sea: One Hundred and Fifty Years of Change Around the Strait of Georgia by Howard Macdonald Stewart. Views of the Salish Sea, which grew out of Howard Macdonald Stewart’s PhD research at UBC, is a deft examination of the Strait of Georgia, a sea spanning 300 kilometres from the southern tip of Vancouver Island to Campbell River and Powell River in the north, and supporting over 200 species of fish, 130 species of marine birds, and 16 kinds of marine mammals. Stewart considers this region through a variety of perspectives—as a highway or barrier, waste dump, recreational haven and more—over the past 150 years in an effort to express this region as an interrelated whole, one that we must work to protect if we want to preserve its inherent richness.
