TWENTY SEVENTEEN ... A LOOK BACK AT THE YEAR THAT WAS



What attracted the most interest from readers of this blog-site in 2017?  I took a few minutes to review and look that over, before compiling a TOP 10. 
Eight of these posts are indeed the top stories, going from number 8 down to number one.  In addition, I added the top two stories from December.


Starting with Number 8, here are the top stories that were of interest to you last year.

NUMBER 8 from June 29th ... "UPDATE ... 8:15pm Thursday June30th ... John Horgan, NDP Leader, has been invited to form government."

NUMBER 7 from January 14th ... "How Can Governments Thirst for Increased Tax Revenues be Squared With It's So-Called Concern for Those Suffering From Addiction"


NUMBER 6 from May 8th ... "PLACING MY "X" ... 'Do jobs matter more than governing with honesty,compassion, and forthrightness"

NUMBER 5 from July 15th ... Todd Stone and Peter Milobar, by all means possible, extort this government toend the never ending delaying process of review after review

NUMBER 4 from October 17th ... BESLER: True conservative voices in this province, whether it's the BC Conservatives or Dianne Watts, both have a steep hill to climb

NUMBER 3 from April 19th ... I CAN'T support that kind of campaign, or a party that would allow a leadership team to okay that kind of campaigning

Number 2 from June 26th ... It (the current situation) should wake up those who think Clark is right of centre. Will it? Time will tell

AND ... Number 1 from April 7th ...
JOHN TWIGG: "I can promise you it won't be a boring campaign!

And from the last 30 days of December ... two more to round out the Top 10 posts of 2017 

December 18th ... One party, and one party only, stands for true conservatism ... true science based environmental protection ... true social services for those needing a hand up. 

December 4th ... ACTUALLY, there was NO good news in latest unemployment figures 

It's January 3rd today ... and the new year is now three days old.  I'm looking forward to seeing what lies ahead on the BC political landscape, and I hope you are as well.

In Kamloops, I'm Alan Forseth.
