“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

While Liberals and their supporters try and paint the Conservatives as the party of old white men - relics of a social age long past - candidates like Claire Rattée are proving them wrong

CBC NEWS says ... Laval MP Eva Nassif 'pushed out' by Liberal Party, riding president says ... and the riding president says outgoing Liberal MP was pushed out of office without explanation  (August 24th). 

The entire executive in the riding was "stunned'' by the recent developments, he said.

And in a post to her Twitter account, Laval Liberal MP Eva Nassif, from the riding of Vimy said:

La fin d’un merveilleux chapitre  / The end of a wonderful chapter”

The following images are the two-page letter that Eva Lassif wrote to her constituents ... and to her fellow MPs ... with an explanation:


It seem, that our so-called ‘feminist’ Prime Minister is having a hard time keeping women MP’s on Team Trudeau. A number have either left the party ranks, are retiring, or have been kicked out, including Caesar- Chavannes, Jody Wilson-Raybould, Jane Philpott, and Pamela Goldsmith-Jones to name just a few.

Meantime a June 26th National Post article notes that more women are running for the Conservatives led by Andrew Scheer -- Conservative candidates like tattoo artist Claire Rattée represent the party's effort to put forward a younger, more female face:

... she confirmed that approaching the Tories was entirely her own initiative. She submitted her nomination package having been inspired by people like longtime Conservative MP Michelle Rempel, somebody to whom she felt she could relate.

I want to give other people somebody to relate to,” she said. As far as the party seeming to recruit a younger, more female roster, Rattée said, “I think personally that they are doing an excellent job of it. But I don’t think that it is something that they necessarily set out to do.”

In what looks like a tight race to a majority government, Scheer’s Conservatives are attracting, and assembling, a bright new group of candidates -- with no restrictions on the boundaries of social, ethnic, sexuality, and religious confines -- ready to take the reins of power in the halls of Parliament after October 21st.

Which means while the Liberal Party and its supporters try and paint the federal Conservatives as the party of old white men, and relics of a social age long past, candidates such as Claire Rattée are proving them wrong.

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
