In the picturesque town of Campbell River on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, life is idyllic.

While the rest of us have come to expect commodities we order from electronics to clothing to be on our doorstep the next day, the residents of Campbell River accept that, since most goods are delivered to the island by boat, their deliveries often take a bit more time.

For Steve, this laid back, slower pace of life was a fair trade off for leaving behind the hectic rat-race he once had to contend with in Barrie, Ontario.

Having experienced both worlds, in many ways Steve may actually appreciate this relaxed life-style even more so than the native residents who take life in Campbell River and all its majestic beauty from the mountains on the horizon to the dolphins playfully swimming in the channel for granted.

But if there is one thing that Steve really misses about Barrie, it’s the delectable flavour of Barrie Burger’s Barbecue Sauce.

Home of the world’s best barbecue sauce.

Like Pavlov’s dog we all have at least one item of food that the very thought of will make us salivate for.

You’re probably thinking about yours right now and I’d be willing to bet the inside of your mouth has become juicer than an over-ripe tomato which by no coincidence is an image that has likewise caused my mouth to water as I write.

For Steve, it’s Barrie Burger’s Barbecue Sauce that starts his oral juices flowing.

The lack of it is Campbell River’s only drawback.

But if you’re as determined as Steve is, and believe that you are worthy of life’s little pleasures whatever the effort, logistics just becomes a minor obstacle to overcome.

Unlike everything else that arrives by boat however, Barrie Burger’s Barbecue Sauce deserves more immediate attention.

Steve relies on a contact in Barrie to air-ship his sauce to Vancouver. From there it will complete its journey to the island aboard a small prop plane from the fleet of Central Mountain Air – Steve’s lifeline to the outside world for items that just can’t wait for a slow boat from the mainland to dock.

And once the Barrie Burger Barbecue Sauce has reached its final destination, all is right with the world, at least for Steve.

I grew up in the small communities of Stroud and Painswick in Innisfil Township – an area that I am proud to say was pioneered by many of my ancestors. Fresh out of college in the early 1970s, along with the help of my best friend Gary, I formed a disc jockey business called "Simple Motion" and later a video production company called "Visible Past." We broke new ground with both. More importantly – we had fun doing it.
