“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

The Great Debate: Sickly Smile ... You Should Have Done This ... You Never Apologized



Here's my synopsis of the televised election debate last light, between BC Liberal Christy Clark, the Green Party's Andrew Weaver, and John Horgan for the NDP. 

Lights -- Cameras -- Action.  And then basically the same thing played out over and over, through-out the 90 minutes.


Christy Clark

                                    Jobs

            sickly smile

                                                You'll add more taxes

                        Sickly smile

$1.00 a day


Andrew Weaver (alternate looking Left to Right -- alternately pointing Left to Right)

                You didn't do this ...

                                                                                                                You didn't do that ...

                                You should have done this ...

You should have done that ...


John Horgan (I'll keep smiling not matter what they through at me)

            "If you came to question period more often I could ask you about ..."

"You've never apologized to the kids that lost a generation of educational opportunity"

                        Housing ... "Why did you wait so long"

"We have put forward legislation 6 times to get big money out of politics"



Christy Clark

                                    Jobs

            sickly smile

                                                You'll add more taxes

                        Sickly smile

$1.00 a day

                                You should have done this ...

                                You should have done this ...

We'll all have our own opinions of who won, however I believe John Horgan took this round.

Christy Clark looked unbelievable, after the first five minutes, because the same sickly smile never left her face.  It left her looking unbelievable.

Andrew Weaver looked like a grumpy father from the 50's as he alternately looked, pointed and chastised Christy Clark and John Horgan for 'not doing this' ... 'not doing that' ... over and over and over again.

John Horgan at times, looked like a deer in headlights but remained composed as he brought forward the NDP plan.  At the same time he held Christy Clark accountable for the BC Education system, what he called a lost generation of children, along with huge increases in housing prices.

There's less than two weeks to go -- anything could happen between here and then.

  1. Once again Horgan came off as a big buffoon. He even managed to misspeak his line about corporate funded campaigns. Horgan showed no respect for either of his opponents.
    The Vancouver Island Horganites must be getting very worried about Weaver's growing attraction to voters in the once sold NDP fiefdom on the Island. If Weaver's Green Party cnadidates win a couple of those ridings, Horgan is very likely going to spend another four years where he rightfully belongs - in opposition.

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
