MEDA editors are a rare breed, partly because there are so few of them. Thus far the organization has had only two people occupy the editor’s chair — Calvin Redekop, who founded The Marketplace in 1980, and Wally Kroeker, who came on board in 1985 and will retire on June 30.
We are delighted to announce our third. Seasoned journalist Mike Strathdee joined MEDA on May 1 as publications editor.
Fuel for the journey: Colleen Dyck in her basement kitchen where protein, fibre and Omega 3 are packed into tasty GORP bars.

Colleen Dyck got a call one day from a retailer: “Did you just pay three people to come into our store and urge us to sell your bars?”
It’s a business owner’s dream — to have customers help with marketing.
That’s what has happened in the four years since Dyck started manufacturing GORP Clean Energy Bars.
