2014 was the year we got back to business, whether in real estate (we grow ever more expensive, ever higher), politics, culture, community (remember the teachers' strike?), or commerce. At the heart of good business is negotiation, and this year's list-our 14th-pays special attention to those who braided together disparate interests, especially following this summer's Supreme Court decision recognizing the Tsilhqot'in people's title to their land. Everything changes as we reconsider relationships with First Nations and with partners across the world drawn to the excellence of our setting, our fortune, and our stewardship.
