Canadians better wake up as see that they are being played by government who is simply following the marching orders of industry. If you think were living in a democracy, keep the dream alive because if you ever wake up you won’t be happy. How many times have you heard the sales pitch we need more industry to pay for all our bills, and if they are not selling you that story they are telling you we need more immig

To suggest the debate between Israel and that of Palestine is far too complex for most people to understand is the most powerful and successful deception being practiced by Israel and its supporters. Having said that … I DON’T WANT ANYONE TO MISUDERTAND THAT I DISLIKE OR HATE JEWS … some of the best people in the world are Jews, some of them are even Israelis. Born and raised to be a Christian, I admit I migh

Like most people in BC, just when you thought the BC Liberals have hit the bottom of the barrel for yet another stupid stunt, the come up with a new one that will blow your minds. I got over paying for and seeing how much of my taxes go to funding schools, I told myself that living with educated kids is so much nicer than living with stupid kids, then along comes Christy Clark’s  Liberals with yet another st

This year marks the year when I join the ranks of those who are 60 and plus, also known as senior citizens, so today is a day of reflection. Too bad instead of feeling like congratulations, our government has moved that up to 65 because they want more of us to die before we hit retirement age. Most of my life, when the daily hustle and bustle of life drags me down, I go for a walk with my dogs in the forest. It giv

For years now we have watched right wing fanatics (Liberals and Conservatives) dismantle everything that used to be owned and operated by the taxpayers. All of this in the name of saving the taxpayers money. I wonder how many people noticed a parallel between those who scooped up these publicly owned entities, and who funds those that put government assets up for sale? Many years ago I heard a quote, I am sure you

Let me quote from the Globe and Mail. “In the letter, the government offers the Gitxsan about $12-million, plus a signing bonus of over $2-million, if it will allow two pipelines to cross territorial lands. “The offer takes into consideration the Westcoast Connector Gas Transmission Project and the Prince Rupert Gas Transmission Project,” states the letter from Laurel Nash, chief negotiator for the lands bran

Social media is a great way for the public to show their support for or against what they believe contravene their ideologies or moral standards. Sadly it is no match for paid organized manipulation as per what we are witnessing today on Facebook in regards to Israel’s massacre in Gaza. Thousands of paid students and volunteers are working 24 hours a day, around the clock and posting what at first appears like th

First I have to confess as a parent I am somewhat in a position of conflict on this one as I have two children who have aboriginal status, but as a parent it also gives reason for grave concern, so it’s fair to say I have a vested interest in the outcome of this historic decision. But enough about me, it’s about each and every one of you First Nations and Canadians alike. Seriously attacking your core support i

Recently the Frazer institute did its annual evaluation of schools, both private and public throughout the province, and it does not comes as a shock that this information was picked up by some outlets of Black Press in particular the Interior News, which often comes out speaking as a mouthpiece for the corporate agenda. More staggering is the suggestion by writer Marisca Bakker that the information should not be d

When you read up on Kitimat, one of the first things that is brought to your attention is its rich history, in particular the history of the people who live in Kitamaat Village, the original people of Kitimat. The Kitamaat Village is the primary residence of the Haisla First Nation, is located 11 km south of Kitimat on the east side of the harbor. When you read the press today, the vote on Enbridge makes it sound l

Have you been one of those who were wondering what happened to me for lack of articles since 2013? The truth is I have been doing a lot of research, a lot of organizational work, and rebuilding a few websites aside from this one, as well as trying to label 10 years of photography, before I get to old to recall what each photo was about. Before I start I want to suggest this issue is one that every province and te

Here we were in the middle of countdown to Christmas and without a shadow of doubt the NEB ruined Christmas for everyone other than the shareholders of stock involved with the production and sale of bitumen. Admittedly we all knew the NEB has never said no to a project yet, so why were we expecting anything different? I have to say it’s not often I see  grown men cry, but that’s exactly what happened on that d

Our provincial lying Liberals want to tout LNG as the clean way to save the world[i]. First they plan to permanently destroy one of the largest farming areas of our province to get electricity[ii]. They say that it’s a better alternative than burning LNG to create hydro, because burning it will create so much pollution BC will not meet its carbon emmisions targets as promised. However a single LNG plant can requi

Updated on November 13th 2013 Super Typhoon Haiyan just before it hit the Philippines We keep hearing governments saying, worst storm in a decade, and worst storm in 100 years; these are simply cycles, nature doing what it’s always done. BULLSHIT! [i] Super Typhoon Haiyan was bigger than Hurricane Katrina and Sandy combined.[ii] Now that we have that out of the way, let’s put the blame where it belongs. Canada

Not so long ago I had a Wow moment when I saw a sign at A&W that made it look like they care about our health;  I saw their new signs bragging no GMO’s or steroids. But I was curious, why was it devoid of bragging that they used all Canadian beef? Now normally I really don’t get hung up on any fast food chain, but I wanted an answer, to that nagging question of why the Canadian beef were missing from their

JLS is back from summer vacation and he is hopping mad! I have been holding my tongue all summer long and trust me; it was like trying to sit on explosives while all the crooks (mostly in our corporate run government) were having a field day our expense. Just when you thought the oil industry would become more honest and more trustworthy and BAM the slap in the face insult, I guess to honor our stupidity. I guess w

Seriously you can bet every insurance company will use the Act of God clause to get out of paying, just as Enbridge will use that same “Act of God” clause to make the residents of British Columbia pay for both clean up and take the losses caused by pipeline breakage due to flood waters from unexpected snow melts and or heavy rains. So back to Act of God, if we’re going to blame God for the damage, then maybe

I am not sure who posted this one online, but thank you to the author, it really does say it all. One more for the road, as a dedicated Flickr user (was) I just have to post one more article before we leave for the summer. Flickr cannot deny that with dedicated photographers it would never have become a photography dynasty in terms of websites for photography. 29,536 photographers (actually more than that) posted t

I am going to wrap up this season with a story that really is getting under my skin, so that I can get it out of my system before we leave here for the summer. (We will be back in late fall) Let me begin by quoting Anthony Murphy who wrote this song sung by the Irish Rovers. “One day my ma’s relations came round to visit me. Just as my father’s kinfolk were all sittin’ down to tea. We tried to
