It may not be February, but we’re in love. With all these reader’s choice awards circulating, we want to take the time to showcase our personal staff favourites and thank these individuals for being important to us. There are quite often small independent businesses or entrepreneurs who go unnoticed in these nominations because they either do not service the masses or pay for corporate advertising. But we see you! And we love you!
