Bruce Mason's The White Book: A Self-Help Cocaine Recovery Program was co-written with Vancouver's Peter Millham. It was distributed by Gordon Soules of West Vancouver. Mason, a former journalist and researcher for radio, were as a public relations officer for SFU, then at UBC. (Some other independently published B.C. books concerned with public health are retired engineer J.E. Dew-Jones' Victoria's Sewage Circus, Harold Tuttle Allen's history of the B.C. temperance movement to 1900, Forty Years' Journey and Arlene Galloway's The Smoke-Free Guide about eliminating tobacco smoke from the environment.) Mason later wrote a history of the Gabriola Community Health Centre as a fundraising project for the island's health care, Our Clinic: Visionary Health Care, Fundraising and Community Building on Gabriola Island (2012), available from Pages Books on Gabriola Island.
