Garth Hopkins came to Vancouver from Ontario in the late 1980s as a widely experienced journalist and editor who served as managing editor of the Financial Times of Canada. His Clairtone: The Rise and Fall of a Business Empire (McClelland & Stewart, 1978) examined one of Canada's most remarkable business failures. He started his career with the now-defunct Edmonton Bulletin and after several newspaper jobs in Western Canada he became advisor to the spokesman for the Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund.
