TAKIN' CARE OF BUSINESS: In his Edmonton Sun column about the death of The Report, Ted Byfield declaims any responsibility for its demise ("Beyond writing columns, I've had almost nothing to do with the magazine for the last 10 years.") and takes a stab at explaining the magazine's longevity:

That it did not [die during the early '90s] is due to the genius of a single man. This was our ad manager, Don McCallum, who began selling advertising profiles on various Alberta industrial companies that the callers couldn't threaten. That kept us alive for at least 10 years.

Er -- how to put this? -- the idea of Don McCallum as a business genius is certainly a minority opinion among Report alum.
