“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

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?

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

AARON GUNN -- He is, at his core, an ideologue, meaning the facts of any particular issue don’t actually matter

Ben Isitt - City Councillor and Regional Director Victoria City Council and its resident-genius Ben Isitt is back with another dumb idea. Introducing a motion to ban the horse-drawn carriages that have coloured Victoria’s downtown streets for decades, calling them “an outdated mode of transportation”. Are you serious?   No one is actually commuting by horse and carriage. They are here for tourists and residents alike to interact with world-class animals and discover the magic and history of our provincial capital. It’s part of what gives Victoria its charm. And the truth is these horses are treated better than anywhere else in the world. They probably live better lives than many British Columbians.   And talk to anyone who works with these horses and they’ll all tell you the exact same thing: this is what the horses love to do. This is what they were bred for and trained for. This is what gives their lives purpose and meaning. But maybe we shouldn’t be su
