Our friend and Contributor BMCQ, aka Bob McQuillan passed away Saturday Morning…


It is with great sadness hearing the news this afternoon, our friend and
PSR/ES contributor and supporter, BCMQ, aka Bob McQuillan passed away
this morning (Saturday) .
Bob was an internationally successful businessman, and always cared
about his community.
Bob took time to write an exclusive column for us – One Man’s Opinion,
on politics, about the City of Vancouver, Province of British Columbia,
and Canada, as well as sharing his thoughts and memories of Radio Man’s
Fave hits from yesterday, and he was a regular, welcome commentator on
many of our blog posts.
Bob shared with me about his many years of calling into CKNW talk shows,
going back to Bill Good Jr, and with a few of the current hosts on CKNW,
or as he referred to it as “CKNDP.” I always enjoyed posting and reading
the opinions of BMCQ.
You may have agreed or disagreed with his opinions, but his columns
always made people think.
Our heartfelt condolences to Bob’s wife Lynnie, his son Maxwell, family, friends and his staff.

Bob was born March 12, 1951. He was 70 years old.

  1. RIP BMCQ.
    I always enjoyed our fun back and forth banter.
    Wish we could have had a beer one day.
    You will be missed.

  2. OMG! Obviously I only knew of Bob from this website and our written postings referring to each other directly or indirectly on various topics. It’s odd in that one feels they sort of know another poster eve like this. BCMQ (Bob) put forth educated but opinionated postings, many I agreed with, others less so but I found informative none the less.

    Bob “BCMQ” shall be missed. My deepest condolences to his family and friends and may Bob rest in peace with our Lord Jesus. 🙁

  3. As a young boy I lived across the street from Bob on a street called Mackie across from Little Mountain golf course. I learned how to swim and his parents pool and next-door to me was another friend Lance Yates the three of us had a great time together, it sure is sad to hear this news of him passing my prayers and thoughts go out to his family and friends. Doug French.

  4. R.I.P my friend you will be truly missed. FAKE NEWS It’s funny how nasty you were to him very recently, including telling him he has mad cow disease. Then now you try to be some hero. Just don’t even talk or say anything. Bob would appreciate that more from you. You can put lipstick on a pig but it’s still a pig. Bob I’ll have a drink for you tonight? 🍻

  5. I have just spoken again to lynn Bob’s wife ,she would like anyone who was going to send flowers, in lew of flowers Bob and Lynn had a great passion for horses ,Bob helped alot of people and causes over the years and wanted no credit or thankyous ,one of those was the Horse Protection Society of BC .please go to their website to Donate or e transfer ad***@hp********.org Thankyou lance


    Ed Note: Lance and Bob were childhood friends who grew up across the street from each other and remained friends until Bob’s passing

  6. BMCQ…so sorry to learn of this news! Prayers & blessings to Bob’s family.
    He was a thoughtful commentator who was respected because he did not follow any ‘party’ or PC line.
    You are missed already!
