“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

‘Businesses are barely keeping their doors open (some no longer are), families are struggling, municipalities are in trouble financially. We need to get on a course of recovery, not a provincial election’ ~~ Conservative leader Trevor Bolin

 

The Conservative Party of BC will be carefully watching Premier John Horgan and the NDP, in the coming days, regarding the escalating rumours of a snap election ... that from leader Trevor Bolin, speaking from Ft. St. John, after I asked him earlier today about the party’s preparation for a possible fall election.

I certainly know why the Premier would consider calling a snap election, and under other circumstances, I (as they Leader of the Conservative Party) would be in favour ... however, now is not the time to play politics”, he stated.

British Columbians businesses are barely keeping their doors open (some no longer are), families are struggling, municipalities are in trouble financially and we need to get on a course of recovery, not a provincial election”, he continued.

While not indicating any specific numbers, when asked about individuals expressing an interest in running for the party, he stated, “We, as Conservatives, have spent the last month working with candidates for nominations in a variety of communities across the Province, and this will continue”.

Still, he indicated, “I truly hope the Premier will do the right thing and put his dreams of a majority government on hold, and focus on helping British Columbians, not forcing them to the polls.

The Conservative leader then continued, “There is plenty of time for an election in 2021 -- as early as February/March when the byelection for Surrey-White Rock should be held – or next Spring after the people of BC, and businesses, have seen some recovery, after struggling from COVID”.


Whenever the next election is called Bolin is letting it be known his party will be ready.

 Under me, the Conservatives, supported by the great people of British Columbia, are ready to answer the mandate people so very much deserve”.

Let’s work together to get this Province back on track, add long term jobs, sustainable growth, rein in the taxes we have all been forced to live with the last two decades and ensure prosperity for every British Columbian.”

Still, as for talk of any early election, Conservative leader Trevor Bolin thinks Horgan should to focusing on other things.

For once, please focus on the people ... not your politics”, he concluded.

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
