This is the same UN Security council that our selfie-indulging, and pampered, Prime Minter has practically groveled to be a part of. Shame on you Justin Trudeau!

A "UN" envoy in BC, studying housing here, says: "We really need to focus on accountability mechanisms. There just simply aren’t enough mechanisms worldwide dealing with the implementation of the right to housing and ensuring all levels of government remain accountable".

UN Special Rapporteur on Housing, Leilani Farha: ‘I’m in a rich country where I’m seeing gross inequality in homelessness and insufferable housing conditions.’

She went further, to say, " ... the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, under Article 11.1 and that basically says everyone has the right to an adequate standard of living, including adequate housing, food, and clothing.

What do I think?

Yah, about those accountability mechanisms ... and the rights (?) people should
Bombed out Syrian city of Aleppo
have. Maybe instead of taking a blind eye approach and twiddling there thumbs / wringing their hands, the UN could spend some of it's attention on goon countries that bomb and destroy innocent citizens and their homes ... and bomb and destroy their hospitals as well. All the while murdering thousands of innocent citizens. (see "Russian airstrikes killed 9,300 people in past year; including 906 children").

Oh, that's right, Russia has a seat at the Security Council, and has a veto on any discussions that come up.
By the way, in case you wondering, the official United Nations website states: 

Mandates and the legal basis for peacekeeping The UN Charter gives the Security Council primary responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security. In fulfilling this responsibility,the Council can establish a UN
peacekeeping operation. UN peacekeeping operations are deployed on the basis of mandates from the United Nations Security Council. Their tasks differ from situation to situation, depending on the nature of the conflict and the specific challenges it presents. 

This is the same UN Security council that our selfie-indulging, and pampered, Prime Minter has practically groveled to be a part of.  Shame on you Justin Trudeau!

It's so much easier for the UN to come to a democratic country, and complain about how things are done; it's much safer for them as well.

What a farce!  Why are we even a part of the UN?

“First Past The Post” works close to home by focusing on electoral districts first … “Proportional Representation” tries to fit a size 10 foot into a size 7 shoe by bastardizing electoral districts

MEL ROTHENBERGER: There are so many things wrong with the referendum on proportional representation, it would take as long to cover it all as it would to explain the convoluted and foggy alternatives on the ballot.

So let’s just talk about the hocus pocus of proportional representation (also known as prop rep, pro rep or PR) math. This one giant flaw should be enough to make us run, not walk, away from prop rep.

Throughout the months leading up to this vote, prop rep boosters have relied heavily on a simplistic abracadabra formula to convince us their system makes sense.

Their favourite line is “40 per cent of the votes should equal 40 per cent of the seats,” or variations thereof.

With the current First Past the Post, they say, “39 per cent of the votes = 54 per cent of the seats = 100 per cent of the power” but with PR “39 per cent of the vote = 39 per cent of the seats = Compromise, cooperation, collaboration.” This is labeled “Proportional Representation Math.”

What, Judy, is the response, to the urgency and compassion show by British Columbians for WHAT IS NEEDED? What are the ‘action words?’

Today is International Overdose Awareness Day.  Did you know such a day existed?
I wasn’t until early this morning.My God, it’s pathetic we even need to have a day like this to mark – and celebrate is obviously a word that would never be used for an occasion like this!
So, for an occasion such as this, Judy Darcy, Minister of Mental Health and Addictions, trotted out ‘words’, because, at least in my opinion, they are easy to say.
Today marks International Overdose Awareness Day, and we honour and remember those we have lost to this terrible crisis. Last year, we lost 1,450 people here in B.C., and by the end of this day three or four more British Columbians will die from a drug overdose as a result of a poisoned and unpredictable illegal drug supply.”

All talk … but little action!
As I mentioned yesterday, on July 18th, the BC Centre On Substance Use, released all of the ‘words’ necessary for our BC NDP government to ‘actually’ begin the process to slow down this terrible crisis, and hel…
