Meet John Bushell & Maureen Vozsler
John and Maureen love living in Prince Rupert. “The ocean and the wilderness is at our doorstep,” said John. John points out that the world is looking at Prince Rupert and people are learning what residents have known all along – that Prince Rupert is a diversified place to live and an amazing place to recreate. “We enjoy the nature and the beauty of the region,” said Maureen. The rich First Nations history and the long time Prince Rupert tradition of coastal fishing makes Prince Rupert special. The Prince Rupert Archives is a special local spot that John and Maureen value for their ongoing work to ensure the story of the development of Prince Rupert is preserved.
Prince Rupert has a variety of great small businesses and John recommends Dolly’s Fish Market, Maverick Mart Groceries and Adventure Launch Tours. John and Maureen own and operate Green Island Coastal Charters. John notes that the local store owners and operators in Prince Rupert are supportive of one another. “I love doing business in a small town because there are many synergies in being linked to local businesses such as sharing ideas, marketing and referrals to one another,” explained John.
