“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

On this day, when so many people tragically died, Justin Trudeau is asking us to remember them ... all the while blotting that out by changing the focus to his re-election bid

TODAY Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced the beginning of an election campaign to elect members of parliament who will represent us in the 43rd Parliament.

Personally, I do not believe that he, nor his government, should be re-elected -- for some incomprehensible reason, he has made multiple mistakes, he has come under scrutiny for ethics violations, and for reasons totally confusing to me, he seems unable to understand that things are not always about him.

Take the date the election has been called – 9 / 11. On this very day he also sent out a statement declaring, in part:

Today, on the 18th anniversary of this tragedy, we remember the nearly 3,000 victims of the attacks, which included 24 Canadians. We offer our condolences to those who continue to grieve their lost loved ones.

We also pay tribute to the courage, perseverance, and sacrifice of the brave first responders, including the hundreds who lost their lives. Surrounded by destruction and debris, firefighters, police officers, military personnel, and ordinary people raced up the steps of the collapsing towers to rescue survivors, and fought for days to extinguish flames at the Pentagon.

On behalf of the Government of Canada, I encourage Canadians to honour those who lost their lives, and all those who selflessly offered their help to others on 9/11

On this day, when so many people tragically died, he asks us to remember them, all the while blotting that out by changing the focus to his re-election bid.

That’s where the focus of today will be directed instead ... and that was deliberate.

No there’s nothing selfless about that Mr. Trudeau, and to me, just ONE reason why you do not deserve to be re-elected ... however that will be for the people of Canada to decide over the next six weeks. 

Just eight days ago I wrote a commentary entitled, “In the words of Justin Trudeau...

If you want any more reason for his government not to be returned on October 21st, I invite you to re-read, or perhaps read for the first time, this commentary.

 “...Canadians have an important choice to make”, Trudeau stated this morning.  He then went on to say, "We've done a lot together these past four years, but the truth is, we're just getting started”.

As you reflect over the past four years of Justin Trudeau's Liberal government, I encourage consider his words  Telling me that he’s ‘just getting started’ does not bring confidence to me, nor should it, I hope, to the majority of Canadians when they cast their ballot on election day.

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
