Entitlement & Corruption


Stephen Castle

Stephen sometimes promotes a venture known as Castle Expeditions.

Stephen has lived in Victoria, BC and Sitka, Alaska.

He has been active on Facebook:


Hired for a summer sea kayak guiding contract on Haida Gwaii, Stephen signed an employment agreement on May 1, 2013 and accepted a prepaid travel subsidy of $250.  Then, he entirely failed to appear for work on Haida Gwaii that summer.  Years later, Stephen has still not repaid the $250 travel subsidy and has not responded to my repeated requests to establish reasonable terms of repayment.  As a result, I question Stephen’s sense of entitlement and ponder his degree of corruption.

While operating my kayak tour business on Haida Gwaii in British Columbia, I have had the opportunity to hire many guides over the past several decades.

  Not all of them showed up for work!

I am prepared to share my personal experience and provide a forthright reference for:

Preventing corruption

For the unethical, corruption occurs if the corrupt gain is greater than the penalty, multiplied by the likelihood of being caught and prosecuted.

There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting.
