West Star Communications celebrates 10 years in business today!

It's simply amazing.

On May 20, 1998 I started my own communications and strategy consulting business, West Star Communications - and 10 years later we're still here and going strong!

This is the longest I've ever held a job in my life - I guess being the boss really helps.

So I want to deeply thank all my current and past clients over the last 10 years for your business and support, all my suppliers for their hard work on behalf of West Star and its clients and everyone who has helped me keep this progressive business going all that time. And thanks especially to my wife Shirley and daughter Erin for putting up with a business that often impinges on family time - I couldn't do it without your support!

I look forward to continuing to provide clients in labour, non-profits, business and government with a wide variety of communications and strategy services - and to doing it all with 10 more years valuable experience than when I started!

Thanks and Cheers!

Bill Tieleman

Congrats on the anniversary of West Star, Bill. Maybe you, me and West Star can attend the funeral of Canned Waste together someday or we can pick up some office equipment at the auction of their stuff by the police after the conviction for fraud (posing as a news organization) and causing untold numbers of innocent children to fraudulently claim to be "newspaper boys/girls!"

Heading into your second decade just gives you even more excuse to be grumpy at the BC liaRs and their ilk! How do you even decide, each day, which rock to turn over in your quest for slime? So much slime, so little time!

Bill, you are second to none in this province - smart, savy, funny, with the know how and sense of style and social justice - mised with a healthy dose of reality - to keep it all together.
May you raise a glass for many moons to come.
