“I am a Canadian, free to speak without fear, free to worship in my own way, free to stand for what I think right, free to oppose what I believe wrong, or free to choose those who shall govern my country. This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind.” ~~ John G. Diefenbaker

Your Application for Membership in the BC Conservative Party Has Not Been Accepted at this Time

Today, in the mail, I received a letter from the BC Conservative Party that in part stated, “… your application for membership in the BC Conservative Party has not been accepted at this time …”

No explanation … no opportunity for recourse … and  no opportunity to address the BC Conservative Party Board Of Directors and Executive.

I was asked by a member of the Metro-Vancouver area what this might be about; I messaged back saying:

I asked to have my membership in the party to be removed when a former board / exec make up decided in the spring to reinstate the memberships, and offered apologies, to the dissidents that had essentially destroyed the BC Conservative Party through a coordinated campaign that left the party in a shambles prior to the 2013 election.

It now seems ironic that in asking to have my membership reinstated, I have been denied, for what can only be thought of as a vendetta against me for having the tenacity to call them out on this, and for a lack of leadership in building the party, communicating with the membership on goals it wishes to pursue (and instead asks for every dwindling donations), and for failing miserably in clearly articulating why people should consider the BCCP.

They have offered nothing, and as a result the party is not even considered by the media when questions of BC politics arise, they have practically non-existent support with voters, and a pile of debt.

I, and others, have put forward ideas and suggestions that could change this, however they have been rejected. Case in point?  I offer this:

Regardless, and despite being declared a member not welcome, I will continue to support and promote a TRUE BC Conservative option for the people of BC.

The Party can ONLY be revived through the will of the members through the grassroots.  This is because the current Board of Directors has been unable, for whatever reason(s), to offer a reason for being that can and will ignite the passions of British Columbians.

Stayed tuned as I will be presenting thoughts of my own of policy ideas.  I will certainly welcome your comments on them, and freely accepting suggestions for improvement.

From Kamloops, I’m Alan Forseth.


  1. You would be a major asset for any party, not taking you as a member is nuts especially when the BC Conservatives are going nowhere.

    If I thought there was any chance the fit would work I would recruit you for the BC Greens.

It seems the call for blood donors is being responded to, however ... “This effort is a marathon, not a sprint” says Canadian Blood Services

A week and a half ago I wrote the commentary ... “ While the national inventory is currently strong, an increase in blood donor cancellations is a warning sign of potential challenges to maintaining a health inventory of blood ” It was written as a result of talk about a potential blood shortage that would occur if people stopped donating due to the COVID-19 virus. It seems the call to Canadians was responded to, however, as I was told this afternoon ... “ T his effort is a marathon, not a sprint ”. As it now stands now, donors are able to attend clinics which are held in Vancouver (2), Victoria, Surrey, and in Kelowna, so I asked if there any plans to re-establish traveling clinics to others communities - for example in Kamloops, Prince George, Prince Rupert, Revelstoke or Cranbrook, and perhaps further north at perhaps Ft. St. John? According to Communications Lead Regional Public Affairs Specialist Marcelo Dominguez, Canadian Blood Services is still on

FEDLSTED -- Rules will have to relax-- the question is how and when

The media has created a fervour over the mathematical models that allegedly help governments predict the future of Coronavirus infections in the general population. Mathematical modelling has limited use and value. We need to understand is that the data available on Coronavirus (COVID-19) infections in Canada is far too small for statistical reliability. The data available for the whole world is useless due to variables in how nations responded to Coronavirus infections. There is no commonality in steps taken to combat virus spread and no similarity in the age demographics of world nations, so the numbers you see on the daily tracking of world infections are not useful in developing a model of infection rates that can be relied on. Mathematical models of the future spread of Coronavirus are better than nothing, but not a whole lot better.  Mathematical models must include assumptions on virus spreads, and various factors involved. As they are used in projections, a small erro

When necessary – and only when necessary – the Family Maintenance Enforcement Program can attach (garnish) wages

Alan Forseth ~~ Kamloops, BC ~~ May 15th Earlier this week (Monday May 13 th ) the BC government announced it would be establishing a new Crown agency to oversee the Family Maintenance Enforcement Program (FMEP).   They indicated that on or before the end of October, the provision of family maintenance services would transition from a contracted service provider, to the newly created Crown agency. Apparently, this was to ensure that family maintenance enforcement services for vulnerable British Columbians continue uninterrupted. Seeing this story, reminded me of a woman ( we’ll call her Mary Brown ) who had email me some time b ack about this very thing, and questions she had about how maintenance enforcement was imposed and enforced. She said to me, “ I’m just curious if you can get any statistics of the homeless men and woman, that have children, that they are paying family maintenance in support of their children”.  “I am not about to sugg
