eBC Cyber-flushed?

For the past three years, Rob Lewis and Sheena Daniels have been the welcoming face of eBC, Small Business BC’s ebusiness advisory service for small business. They have provided freely available, on-demand information and advice about ebusiness for entrepreneurs, built a leading “ebusiness for small business” portal, developed a comprehensive lunchbox seminar series and maintained an informative blog. That all came to an end last month, when Rob’s and Sheena’s contracts were abruptly terminated.

Five Questions for Michael LeBlanc – CanWest Interactive

michaelleblanc2.jpg
_After six and a half years at “Hudson’s Bay Company”:http://www.hbc.com/, Michael LeBlanc recently left to take on a new role as General Manager/Director – Shopping at “CanWest Interactive”:http://www.canwest.com/interactive.html. We caught up with Michael to ask him about the move and his feelings on the state of e-commerce in Canada…_
*One Degree: Congratulations on the new gig. You’ve been at HBC for quite a while now – what precipitated the change?*
I spent over six great years at “Hbc”:http://www.hbc.com, both in the online business and within their CRM group – learned a ton and planted a few flags on hilltops across the Canadian eCommerce/retail landscape. The role CanWest offered me was an outstanding opportunity to leverage my experience, learn about a new industry and work with some of the best and brightest in the game.
*One Degree: As a media company people don’t normally associate Canwest with retailing. Any hints as to how you’ll integrate commerce into a largely ad-supported business model?*
