“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

Conservative leader Trevor Bolin says, ‘We are flattered the official opposition (BC Liberals) shared our same concerns from a month earlier’

Trevor Bolin ... leader of the Conservative Party of BC


Nearly a month ago (June 19th), Conservative Party of BC leader, Trevor Bolin, remarked to me that the party is “... hoping that Victoria has an effective restart plan, keeping in mind the BC forest industry was struggling before COVID-19 ... and long term plans for forestry, mining, energy and

agriculture need to be included so all regions of BC can emerge stronger.”

He went on to say, “We would support a reduction - or removal - of PST on hotels, restaurants and fuel, and a removal of the carbon tax to encourage a rebound in tourism and help all British Columbians”.

Once Dr. Bonnie Henry gives us the okay to open the province up, to more tourism, the old adage of ‘BC’ equals ‘Bring Cash’ needs to end. Punitive taxes have been milking tourists for years.”

And further, on the taxes we as British Columbians pay to government?

"We are suffering death by a thousand punitive taxes ... all consumption taxes are regressive, and”, he continued, “they impact the poor more than the wealthy”.

Now, earlier this week, several provincial media outlets were reporting that the BC Liberals were calling on the NDP government of Premier John Horgan to put a temporary halt on sales taxes.

In just one of the news stories (from News 1130) Liberal leader Andrew Wilkinson was quoted saying, “When we’ve been successful combating COVID-19, we should be more advanced in our recovery plan. We shouldn’t be waiting for the situation to resolve itself elsewhere before we get going on rebuilding British Columbia.”

Okay ... so look above ... at the comments of Trevor Bolin.

See anything familiar?

Last night, I asked for his thoughts on the similarities -- he just laughed, while saying ... “We are flattered the official opposition shared our same concerns from a month earlier".

We’re taking the concerns of British Columbians seriously. In next October’s provincial election, we’ll have a full package of grass roots policies and platforms that people expect from a party represented by the people, for the people of BC”.

And, we will be backed by stellar candidates across the province”, Bolin concluded.

  1. My comment is that the BC Libs never met a tax they didn't like. Everything from them imposing the carbon tax in the first place to them jacking MSP premiums up basically shows their hand openly.

    I am skeptical of the BC Libs as their words are usually pretty hollow. It is pretty simple to stand on a podium and shake a fist at the government but the Libs have no real credibility. No one can trust them. Not after the endless scandals that they had or their abysmal fiscal record.

    BC needs a better option. Mr. Bolin better remember this. He is at this time an option for people of that perspective and he needs to show what the difference is between the BC Conservatives and the BC Libs.

  2. Thanks for taking the time to comment and ensuring I was able to hear your thoughts.

    As we continue to work hard ensuring British Columbians know who I am as leader of the Conservatives, our policies, platforms and Made in B.C. plan will also become a lot more widely known.

    We are certainly very different from the B.C. Liberals, and are positive people from all over this province will see why we are the best choice to lead B.C. and her people.

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

WUN FEATHER -- can we just put those two names to bed for a while? You can call me an ‘Indian’ and I won't mind. And let's not call the farmers and ranchers ‘Settlers’ anymore

Hey there # TeamCanada !   I can't take it any more! Well, I guess I can, but I don't want to. I want to talk about the names we call each other. My very best friends, and all my Elderly Aunts and Uncles call me an Indian. I have walked into the most magnificent dining hall at the Air Liquide Head office, Quai D'orsay in Paris, France, surrounded by the worlds top producing Cryogenics team, and Patrick Jozon, the President of Air Liquide, has seen me enter the room, and yelled: " Bonjour! There is Warren! He is my Indian friend from Canada! He and I chased Beavers together in Northern BC!" And over 400 people turned to look at me and then they all smiled, and nodded. To most European people, an Indian is an absolute ICON!   The ultimate symbol of North America. They love us. And then, one time I had just gotten married and took vacation days off to take my new wife to meet my Grandmother; I was so proud. But as soon a
