“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

John Horgan has still yet to put forward a recovery plan, and now we know why ... his mind is preoccupied on an election no one wants


At the same time as Dr. Bonnie Henry laid out the steps needed to deal with the uncertainty of what the pandemic will bring this fall, the Premier gave the strongest indication yet that he plans to put his own political interests ahead of the real needs of British Columbians.

British Columbians are looking for leadership that ensures we’re healthy and safe and that also focuses on the economic health of our families,” said BC Liberal leader Andrew Wilkinson.

Today, John Horgan showed he’s not prepared to deliver that and instead, is consumed by the fortunes of his party and not the people he serves.”

After Dr. Henry laid out a comprehensive plan of health measures for dealing with the pandemic this fall, John Horgan refused to rule out an early election and chose to fuel the speculation by saying the Confidence and Supply Agreement (CASA) with the BC Greens is not worth the paper it is written on.

Everyone I talk to wants all of us to be focused on how we’re going to recover, both economically and health-wise,” added Wilkinson.

It’s been six months and John Horgan has still yet to put forward a recovery plan — and now we know why: his mind is preoccupied on an election no one wants.”

The BC Liberals have consistently called for Horgan to recall the Legislature for the scheduled fall sitting and present a plan for recovery that can be debated.

People are hurting, they are stressed about the kids going back to school, and about whether they will still have a job this fall,” concluded Wilkinson.

That’s where our focus is and that’s where the Premier’s focus should be. It’s time to stop doing this dance around a fall election. He needs to stand by his word and let’s get on with helping British Columbians.”

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
