“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

Nomen Nescio -- I Do Not Know Your Name

This morning, I received an email from "Nomen Nescio".  Never heard of him?  Well neither had I until this morning.


For those unaware, and according to Wikipedia, Nomen Nescio is used to signify an anonymous or unnamed person. From Latin nomen, name, and nescio, I do not know (from nescire, not to know), it literally means, I do not know the name.

So what did Nomen Nescio have to say? 


"... the president and board of directors of the BC Conservative Party have failed Kamloops. Their lack of organization and capacity for making disastrous decisions in the months leading up to the May 9, 2017 Provincial General Election (e.g. not appointing a Party Leader, nominating only 10 of 87 candidates, releasing an incredibly weak pre-election platform, and leaving all major planning decisions to the last minute) undermined our Party's election performance. In the end, we captured 0.5% of the popular vote, about 1/10th of the popular vote in 2013.

We need to take back our Party and move it forward in a more productive direction. With Christy Clark's BC Liberals on their way out, it is now more important than ever for you to have a say in the future of the BC Conservative Party. This opportunity is unlikely to come again anytime soon. Please take the time to read and sign the online petition located at the web address below


Do I think the BC Conservative Party -- at least a few who have had their hand on the rudder in recent years -- have failed those who desire to have a conservative voice, and party they can support?  YES!


BUT ... in the same way another anonymous letter came out during the Dan Brooks / Rick Peterson leadership campaign (which smeared Peterson), the email I received went where it deserved to go.  JUNK ... delete ... and gotten rid of.


This is just my personal opinion, however, if you received the same email I did this morning, that is where yours also deserves to go.  DELETE --- JUNK!


Is the author of this email right in their statements?  I will not comment on that because if this individual is unwilling to let their name stand, then it's not worth doing or saying anything about it.


Nomen Nescio, I do not know your name --- stand up for what you believe -- or you are not worthy of discussion on what you have to say.


In Kamloops, I'm Alan Forseth

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

When necessary – and only when necessary – the Family Maintenance Enforcement Program can attach (garnish) wages

Alan Forseth ~~ Kamloops, BC ~~ May 15th Earlier this week (Monday May 13 th ) the BC government announced it would be establishing a new Crown agency to oversee the Family Maintenance Enforcement Program (FMEP).   They indicated that on or before the end of October, the provision of family maintenance services would transition from a contracted service provider, to the newly created Crown agency. Apparently, this was to ensure that family maintenance enforcement services for vulnerable British Columbians continue uninterrupted. Seeing this story, reminded me of a woman ( we’ll call her Mary Brown ) who had email me some time b ack about this very thing, and questions she had about how maintenance enforcement was imposed and enforced. She said to me, “ I’m just curious if you can get any statistics of the homeless men and woman, that have children, that they are paying family maintenance in support of their children”.  “I am not about to sugg
