Born in 1964 in North Vancouver, George Affleck is a writer and broadcaster who has managed the B.C. and Yukon Community Newspapers Association. He is the author of Paper Trails: A History of BC and Yukon Community Newspapers (Arch Communications, 1999). Paper Trails profiles 100-plus members of the B.C. and Yukon community newspaper association--including the century-old Boundary Creek Times--and provides a complete mailing list of community newspapers. In 2000, Affleck formed Curve Commmunications Group, a public relations firm in Vancouver but continued to work with the BCYCNA while preparing guide books for walks in Vancouver. [BCBW 2003]
