KAMLOOPS: An invitation to join resource workers to a Brown Bag Lunch was extended to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau – it was declined


According to local Kamloops ShareBC representative, Dennis Giesbrecht, there were well over 100 pro-resource supporters at the Coast Canadian Inn this morning.  Them came out during a snowy day in Kamloops, to greet Liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

In one of the photo’s you can see people signing a banner asking Trudeau to get the pipelines built.  In same photo (bottom right corner), you can see the brown bag lunch they had ready for Justin should he have joined them. 

Dennis Giesbrecht informed me that an invitation to meet with local resource workers, and enjoy the working mans and woman’s brown paper bag lunch, was extended through the Prime Ministers office -- there was no response to it.  Meantime, the white collar federal Liberal supporters, who could afford a $300 lunch so as to hob-nob with the Prime, did get to spend time with Trudeau.

Hmmmm … I’m pretty sure I recall something from Trudeau saying he understands the plight of the middle class.  Coming out and spending some time with brown bag lunch resource workers, might actually have allowed him to find out first hand, the current plight they face with job loses, and every increasing taxes.

“First Past The Post” works close to home by focusing on electoral districts first … “Proportional Representation” tries to fit a size 10 foot into a size 7 shoe by bastardizing electoral districts

MEL ROTHENBERGER: There are so many things wrong with the referendum on proportional representation, it would take as long to cover it all as it would to explain the convoluted and foggy alternatives on the ballot.

So let’s just talk about the hocus pocus of proportional representation (also known as prop rep, pro rep or PR) math. This one giant flaw should be enough to make us run, not walk, away from prop rep.

Throughout the months leading up to this vote, prop rep boosters have relied heavily on a simplistic abracadabra formula to convince us their system makes sense.

Their favourite line is “40 per cent of the votes should equal 40 per cent of the seats,” or variations thereof.

With the current First Past the Post, they say, “39 per cent of the votes = 54 per cent of the seats = 100 per cent of the power” but with PR “39 per cent of the vote = 39 per cent of the seats = Compromise, cooperation, collaboration.” This is labeled “Proportional Representation Math.”

I once called it “voodoo…

What, Judy, is the response, to the urgency and compassion show by British Columbians for WHAT IS NEEDED? What are the ‘action words?’

Today is International Overdose Awareness Day.  Did you know such a day existed?
I wasn’t until early this morning.My God, it’s pathetic we even need to have a day like this to mark – and celebrate is obviously a word that would never be used for an occasion like this!
So, for an occasion such as this, Judy Darcy, Minister of Mental Health and Addictions, trotted out ‘words’, because, at least in my opinion, they are easy to say.
Today marks International Overdose Awareness Day, and we honour and remember those we have lost to this terrible crisis. Last year, we lost 1,450 people here in B.C., and by the end of this day three or four more British Columbians will die from a drug overdose as a result of a poisoned and unpredictable illegal drug supply.”

All talk … but little action!
As I mentioned yesterday, on July 18th, the BC Centre On Substance Use, released all of the ‘words’ necessary for our BC NDP government to ‘actually’ begin the process to slow down this terrible crisis, and hel…
