My name is Vincent Gornall. My wife, Francesca Smith-Jones*, and I have been living in Victoria, British Columbia since September 2009. Over the next year, I plan to finish my thesis in UVic’s History Department, on urban renewal in the Victoria area during the 1950s through 1970s. I have also designed and led several walking tours on urban themes. You can contact me at vincent_gornall [at] hotmail.com.
