“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

Don't tell me the sky's the limit when there are footprints on the moon

EARLY YESTERDAY, I the following information out by email to several individuals -- letting them know we (the BC Conservatives) had every intention of being a viable alternative in the next provincial election in BC. I also posted a much briefer edit on Social media (Facebook and Twitter).  Here is the text of the email which was sent:

Greetings friends ...

I would like to let you know, if you are unaware, that just a few short months ago I rejoined and became a member of the BC Conservative Party.  Additionally, I attended a very successful AGM which was held a few weeks back in Langley. 

I believe in small 'c' conservative ideals, and I believe that the well-being of our province will not happen with either our current GreeNDP government ... or with the Liberals, who are INDEED Capitol "L" Liberals in both name, and in governing style!

This email is to advise you that initial prep work is underway to restart the Kamloops North Thompson, and Kamloops South Thompson, BC Conservation Riding Associations -- as well as Fraser Nicola. This region has always been fertile ground for true conservatives, and I look forward to having your support.

I have requested that the party attempt to have Interim Leader Scott Anderson (long-time Board / Executive Member, and Vernon City Councillor) join us in the coming weeks to discuss the future ahead for OUR party, and our region.  Stay tuned for information on meeting dates coming in the near future!

Now, here are a couple of things I am asking of you:
  • Please email back to let me know that you, like me, wish to be a part of the BC Conservative moment, and build it into a force for the next election
  • Will you be able to offer a bit of time to assist in setting up initial meetings?
  • WILL YOU FORWARD THIS EMAIL on to friends you believe to be true Conservatives who are looking to find a home with a conservative movement in BC -- we need them, and 100's of others?
  • Everyone has talents, skills, experience that can be of amazing assistance in helping us grow -- it DOES NOT have to be political.  YES, I am asking for you to volunteer some time (a little or a lot, it does not matter -- only that you do if you are able)

The time is now, and I hope you will respond in a positive way to this call to action!

"Don't tell me the sky's the limit when there are footprints on the moon." ~~ Paul Brandt

Canadian country music singer Paul Brandt has it right, and what he says is a fitting quote to have in my signature, when it comes restarting things in the Kamloops, and Fraser Nicola, regions ... " Don't tell me the sky's the limit when there are footprints on the moon."

There's a job to be done, and I look forward to many hands joining in the task!

What thoughts do you have on the matter?  The floors yours, and I'd love to hear from you!

In Kamloops, I'm Alan Forseth.


  1. Best wishes Alan but you'll be wasting your time if ....

    1. The same old federal Conservatives dominate the board of directors and impose a far-right platform that leaves the centre solely to the anything-to-stop-the-NDP so-called Liberals

    2. You appeal only or mainly to "true" Conservatives; there are not enough of them to elect a dog-catcher, let alone an MLA, let alone 50 of them!

    Take a lesson from WAC Bennett - he built a big tent, developed a populist platform and governed for 20 years.

    Focus on problems that need to be solved then develop new solutions to do so.

  2. I had a sit down with Scott Anderson, last week, and I am getting a positive vibe, too. I have agreed to come back and help

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
