John Brink

A local storyteller and filmmaker will produce a 20 minute documentary on Prince George’s John Brink for Telus Storyhive. Ze Helios received a Telus Storyhive grant to bring a northern story to the screen. “All these crazy things happened to him, and he never gave up. That is what is interesting to me, he never gave up” Helios said about Brink; “He is a fighter.” John Brink came to Canada from the Netherlands in 1965 with not much more than his suitcase. Now, he is one of BC’s most successful businessmen, starting Brink Forest Products which became the largest secondary lumber manufacturing company in North America. In 2019, he was awarded the Order of British Columbia, the highest honour the Province can award. Telus Storyhive enables creators in communities to develop local stories into ready-for-TV productions that will be available on their YouTube page and for all Telus Optic users.
