The First Century
Union of British Columbia Municipalities

No organization in British Columbia has persevered more diligently for the public good with less fanfare than the UBCM. Anyone interested in the governance of British Columbia should read this book. Its combination of text, biographies, contemporary documents and images is impressive and rewarding.

— Jean Barman, Professor Emeritus, University of British Columbia, Author of The West Beyond the West: A History of British Columbia

This is an extremely well-crafted history not only of the Union of British Columbia Municipalities but of the province itself. It will command the attention of not only those with some involvement with the activities of the UBCM but everyone interested in the social and political history of British Columbia.

— Norman J. Ruff, Associate Professor Emeritus, University of Victoria
