A message from the director, IUS.

The Canadian Journal of Urban Research commenced publishing in 1992, with the inaugural issue containing a diverse collection of articles that ranged from exploring Vancouver as a global city to the rise of suburban office parks. Since that first issue, CJUR has remained committed to providing Canadian and international scholars with a peer-reviewed forum from which to explore urban issues. Our first fourteen years of publication have seen some 150 articles and research notes published along with hundreds of book reviews and a number of special topic issues.

Produced by the Institute of Urban Studies, University of Winnipeg, CJUR has always relied upon the strong support of academics and practitioners to help ensure that the quality of the journal has been maintained. From our valued Editorial Board members to the countless referees, authors, book reviewers and subscribers, the journal remains a testament to the commitment of many to keep the light shinning bright on current urban issues.

I would like to close our fourteenth year by thanking Dr. Dan Chekki for his tireless work as Editor. Dan has been a true supporter of CJUR and has devoted the last few years to helping increase the subscriber base and to exploring new ideas and concepts.

I would also like to introduce Dr. Marc Vachon, who has gratefully accepted an invitation to serve as Principal Editor of CJUR. I look forward to working with Marc as we continue to evolve CJUR.

As we move into our fifteenth year of publication, it is time to once again revisit and renew our mandate and to explore urban issues with an emphasis on the Canadian urban system. I look forward to an engaging time and to strengthening CJUR. The coming year will see CJUR once again "reface" its look with a new and exciting cover. We will also be working hard to attract new readers and to expand our subscription base. As a small journal, CJUR remains possible through the commitment of our readers, and if the first fourteen volumes are any indication, we should have a bright future.

With Respect
