I've always been impressed with Joseph Planta's interviews. I first discovered Joe's work back in 2004, when he interviewed then city councillor Sam Sullivan for the Knowards campaign he headed up at the time. Now all these years later Joe has interviewed me on a couple of occasions. I think he must have a special allotment of interviews for people that live in his neighbourhood, otherwise why would he be talking to me?
As it turns out Planta lives next door to my neighbourhood Mountain View about five blocks from my place. He attended local schools, was born in Vancouver and raised in the community. His website thecommentary.ca has just had a revamp, and you should try to check out all the great interviews he's done in recent months.
Joe is a Vancouver original, and you have to admire his dedication to his passion for current affairs. Here's the link to his latest conversation with me.
