^You could plunk that building down at the corner of Government and Herald with a new paint job and call it authentic Chinatown aesthetic. The Hallmark Society would love it.

Speaking of the Hallmark Society, whatever happened to them? I haven't heard from Ken Johnson in about six or seven years.


Know it all.

Ken was in the news in 2016 as President of the Hallmark Society and the Hallmark Societies usage agreement to take over the old Craigflower Schoolhouse:

I think Ken keeps a low profile because he's still the #1 hands on heritage consultant in town, and as much as he wants to retire, there are line-ups of folks who desperately want him to go back to work, preferably on their own heritage home or heritage project!

 

Ken is the veritable walking-bible of heritage restoration.

I had the pleasure of getting to know him when I served on the board of the Saanich Heritage Foundation.    A walking wikipedia of YYJ heritage
