“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

BC Conservatives say, ‘The good news? We aren’t gathering to just talk about issues facing British Columbians; we are gathering to plan our future -- the future of British Columbia -- a future that includes us all’

BC Conservatives are a day away (Saturday) from their Annual General Meeting, in Abbotsford, and according to Party officials, excitement is growing about the possibilities, and future, for a party that was once a strong force in the province.

One of the reasons for our growing appeal over the past several months”, related Conservative Party leader Trevor Bolin, “Is that people are realizing the need for a common sense choice, or option; and people need that choice, now more than ever”.

At the AGM, according to Bolin, the membership will continue on the road to forming policies, and a platform, that will benefit families, create jobs, reduce the cost of living and set BC on a course that we can be proud of for generations.

We have seen the long term effects the BC Liberals have caused in initiating a Carbon Tax which hurt B C families, and did little to benefit the environment”, Bolin remarked.

We have seen the continuation of high sky rates from ICBC, money laundering claims relating to sky high real estate prices in some areas of the province, and the list does on”.

However, I would be remiss”, he continued, “if we did not talk about the NDP’s brief, yet extremely negative effects of increased taxes, blocking resource projects, and sitting by idly as a once proud forest industry declines into in shambles”.

All of these issues are the direct result of a government, led by Premier John Horgan, that has been negligent in its disregard to engaging with, or listening to, British Columbians”.

The party is encouraging all members to attend the Annual General Meeting, which gets underway tomorrow in Abbotsford at 9am; being held at The Rancho on Delair Road.

We need the involvement not just of members, but of all British Columbians, to help in creating a party that will shape the future of BC using common sense”.

Bolin concluded his comments by stating, “Here’s the good news. We aren’t gathering to just talk about issues facing British Columbians; we are gathering to plan our future -- the future of British Columbia -- a future that includes us all”.

The stats clearly demonstrate the need for professional and impartial advice at the time of purchase, renewal, and refinancing of mortgages

REPRINTED WITH PERMISSION : Canadian Mortgage Trends   Canadians need guidance with their mortgages ... t hat’s the takeaway from a national survey released this week by, which found half of Canadians aren’t aware of the mortgage options available to them. Not only that, but Canadians are lacking in some other basic mortgage trivia, with an astounding 9 out of 10 respondents not knowing that mortgage interest is charged semi-annually: 28% think interest is compounded monthly; 17% think it’s bi-weekly; 17% think it’s annually; 28% just have no idea. Should we be concerned? Dustan Woodhouse, President of Mortgage Architects, and a former active broker who has written multiple educational mortgage books, thinks so. “ Sounds about right. We know about what we pay attention to, i.e., The Kardashians ,” he wrote to CMT. “ The material concern in this is how easy it makes it for the government to over-regulate the industry, with c

THE SIDEWINDER -- Just quit your constant damned whining and do something positive about it

  Living in a democracy is a wonderful thing, but it comes with responsibilities such as voting and being involved. When the dust settled on Saturdays (October 24 th ) BC election, less than two thirds of the eligible voters * took the time to vote - but the loudest bitchers will probably be among the more than one third of voters who sat on their asses and complained about how all politicians are crooks, etc. How many of you constant whiners have ever done anything close to becoming involved; or do you just like sniveling to hear your own voice? Are you one the arseholes who likes to take advantage of everything our democracy has to offer, without ever contributing anything? And I don't want to listen to your crap about paying taxes, blah, blah, blah. There's more to making democracy work than simply voting and then sitting back and let others carry the ball for you. Too many people seem unwilling to get involved - and follow-up - to make sure elected po

AARON GUNN -- He is, at his core, an ideologue, meaning the facts of any particular issue don’t actually matter

Ben Isitt - City Councillor and Regional Director Victoria City Council and its resident-genius Ben Isitt is back with another dumb idea. Introducing a motion to ban the horse-drawn carriages that have coloured Victoria’s downtown streets for decades, calling them “an outdated mode of transportation”. Are you serious?   No one is actually commuting by horse and carriage. They are here for tourists and residents alike to interact with world-class animals and discover the magic and history of our provincial capital. It’s part of what gives Victoria its charm. And the truth is these horses are treated better than anywhere else in the world. They probably live better lives than many British Columbians.   And talk to anyone who works with these horses and they’ll all tell you the exact same thing: this is what the horses love to do. This is what they were bred for and trained for. This is what gives their lives purpose and meaning. But maybe we shouldn’t be su
