"In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing” ~~ Theodore Roosevelt

And that is why today I simply say, "May common sense prevail tomorrow..."



In a post a week ago, I included the following phrase; "...the concept of fiduciary trust and adherence to high ethical standards is not an optional requirement of a public organization incorporated under the Societies Act.  It is a legal requirement as well as a moral imperative."

I wish I could claim it as my own, however it was a friend who provided it too me.



Today, I repeat it once more, on the eve of the BC Conservative Party AGM, which will be held tomorrow in Richmond.  Over the past several months I have written on concerns that I, and others have had, with regards to a failure by the current Board to be open and transparent, and to move the BC Conservatives forward in a positive light that clearly presents an electable option to both the NDP and the BC Liberals.



Today, I had intended to present a much different post, however a good friend wisely counseled me saying:



"There will be a new board elected on Saturday night. If we are lucky, it will be a much more democratic and efficient board - and on Monday morning of next week you may find that a number of these issues will have already been cleared up."



Since first running as a candidate for the BC Reform Party in 1996, I have championed the need for an alternative to polarized politics -- that the people of BC should always have a choice.  Not just Left or Right, but also reasoned and forward thinking.



I still believe, firmly, this is necessary.

And that is why today I simply say, "May common sense prevail tomorrow, and may the MEMBERS of the BC conservative Party, and those who have tried to defend and protect it, have the opportunity to see it rise once again."
