“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

We are once again witnessing a government that does not listen to the people; saying it is, does not make it so

On the eve of tomorrows Annual General Meeting in Abbotsford, BC Conservatives say we are once again witnessing a government that does not listen to the people.

BC Conservative leader Trevor Bolin
Simply saying it is, does not make it so”, BC Conservative leader Trevor Bolin stated, just before boarding a late afternoon plane out of the Peace River country, bound for Abbotsford.

Our current NDP government, led by Premier John Horgan, must truly believe that they’re doing a great job because that it’s all we see in current press releases, and media stories”.

The Conservative leader continued, “This Premier promised consultation with local communities, and British Columbians, over hot topic items such as the Caribou habitat, and park areas, in Northern BC”.

He went so far as to appoint former South Peace MLA Blair Lekstrom as a liaison in the Peace River area, to help in creating a Caribou rescue plan; then just three weeks ago Lekstrom publicly denounced the process, informing those he was appointed to represent, that none of his suggestions were recognized by the Premier”.

According to the BC Conservatives, a government media release today was filled with comments about public consultation, working with communities affected, and making this about benefits to British Columbians. 
“Here’s what they told us”, said Bolin.  They said they had achieved an ‘historic agreement that strives to protect southern mountain caribou in northeastern B.C., while considering the social and economic well-being of communities and stakeholders in the region’. 

Given the resignation of Lekstrom, and his recent comments, it appears that is not the case, as the BC Conservatives leader, Trevor Bolin, concluded with this statement;

We are all British Columbians and we all deserve a Government that listens, cares, and acts for the best interest of its people”.

BC Conservatives will meet tomorrow in Abbotsford, for their Annual General Meeting.  It gets underway at 9am, at The Rancho, on Delair Road.

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
