“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

Right now, British Columbia only has two choices; terrible, and worse than terrible …



A few weeks back I wrote a piece stating that we (small 'c' conservatives) really had no choice, if we didn't want an NDP win in the next election.  Outside of having a very strong Independent to vote for, or not voting at all, there was little choice given our option but to vote for the BC Liberal candidate in our riding.



Personally since then, I really haven't changed my mind, however a former political ally (John Crocock) from our BC Conservative days called to remind me that, "The BC Action Party was formed to give British Columbia a positive choice"



From that conversation I offered him the chance to make his pitch to you ... so in John's words, here is why he is asking for your support for candidates they'll be running in the May Provincial General Election.



Right now, British Columbia only has two choices, terrible, and, worse than terrible …



The BC Liberals can unbelievably fleece the British Columbian’s population and get away with it completely. All they have to say is, Well if you do not like what we do, you will have the scary NDP that would be even worse than us. The BC Action Party is planning to stop this unacceptable situation.



What the BC Action Party wants to stop …




1) British Columbia’s mega projects, costing many times more than comparable projects elsewhere.

2) Questionable sales of British Columbia assets, way below their market value.

3) Keeping volumes and volumes of information to themselves that British Columbian’s have a right to know.

4) Decisions upon decisions made for friends of the Government, not for the best interest of British Columbians.



We can mention just a few of these that are sadly in these categories:




BC Rail ; Trying to block the Burrard Street Bridge for Lulu Lemons ; The Port Mann Bridge Cost/Tolls etc. ; The Vancouver Convention Center ; The future George Massey replacement project ; Family Day scheduled a week before the rest of Canada ; Dubious charges in the (Carbon Tax/MSP/ICBC Rates/Encorp Computer Fees) ; Pressuring and rewarding corporations for party donations in many different ways.



The above are just a few of the unacceptable actions that the BC Liberals have and are doing to the public. The BC Action Party says enough is enough … British Columbians should not have to put up with all this. These actions are making British Columbia into a third world place where the friends of the Present Government are getting away with a multitude of atrocities at the expense of the pubic. The haves, are their friends, and have-nots are everybody else in the province.



What the BC Action Party Members believes …



The government of British Columbia must listen to all British Columbians and must be accountable for its actions. It must be a leader in pursuing innovation while maintaining the diversity of the people.



The goal of making government transparent is very important to us at The BC Action Party. This falls in direct contrast to every other major political party in British Columbia, since transparency could (and should) result in criticism, analysis and ultimately judgment in the public forum, However, The BC Action Party welcomes that, since all governing decisions should be made for the greater good of the province.



The BC Action Party is a grass roots party, and welcomes everybody, who are saying enough is enough, we have to have a government that represents all of the people in British Columbia not just a small circle of chosen people.



Please come and join us and check out some of the positive actions we want to introduce to help make our dream of having a responsible government to represent the people of British Columbia. 



And there you have it.  If you'd like to find out more about the BC Action Party, you can stop by their website by clicking here.



Till next time, I'm Alan Forseth in Kamloops.

  1. Well it is about time that BC had a choice on the political spectrum. Now if they will just field 87 Candidates and become the alternative to the BC Liberals, they will most likely be the BEST choice for British Columbians!!!

  2. Unfortunately, the time is very short to be able to get the BC Action Party up to election speed. Can they vet enough competent candidates to fill all ridings? If the launch is not full on will it then just split the vote with Libs and give the NDP a walk-in?

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
