Remembering Brian Martin

Remembering Brian Martin

Former Journal of Commerce (JOC) publisher Brian Martin passed away on Aug. 30 and he left an enduring legacy. For 30 years Martin was synonymous with the JOC, here is a collection of reflections on his contributions to not only our publication but also construction in the Lower Mainland.

On the occasion of the JOC’s 100th anniversary eight years ago this is what Martin wrote:

“Somebody must take a blank piece of paper or a blank computer screen and turn it into a physical, living product. In that sense the Journal of Commerce is very similar to the construction industry it has served for a century. Construction takes empty, often blank pieces of land and creates working, living structures…Publishing and construction: two very different industries completely bound together for a century. If that’s not a record, nothing is.”
