You've heard about self-made men but you never met one like Louis Potvin.

A French-Canadian from an Alberta homestead, he learned radio technology to get into the RCAF during the Second World War, and his nimble fingers danced from the dit-dah of the Morse Code into the developing world of radio communications.

A salesman's salesman, he went to Japan after the war, and found markets in Latin America and Cuba for Canadian electronics, then gave it all up to transform a rugged wilderness acreage into a recreational community.

He still works the world by ham radio, call sign VE7CHN, from his idyll on Lillooet Lake, a little-known getaway in a bowl of snow-capped mountains near Pemberton, British Columbia.
