“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 have never been in support of the Carbon Tax, which was initially imposed on us by the BC Liberals’ -- Conservative BC leader Trevor Bolin

The following is from BC's Conservatives ...

At the start of this provincial election campaign, one of the questions being asked by British Columbians is ... “Why vote Conservative?”


It’s important to know that the platform of Conservatives in British Columbia is very unique from other parties that use blue, or call themselves conservative.

Speaking from Ft. St. John where he makes his home, Conservative leader Trevor Bolin made his party’s position clear with regards to the carbon tax, which was initially imposed on the province by the BC Liberals, and which has continued under the watch of Premier Horgan’s NDP government.


We are not and have never been in support of the Carbon Tax, and question how much of what BC residents are forced to pay has actually been used for the purposes government stated it would be. Furthermore, science shows the carbon tax has done nothing to reduce greenhouse gases (GHG’s) in British Columbia, and we deserve better”.


On issues with major impact on British Columbians, the imposition of the carbon tax being a prime example, Conservatives believe in small government affecting change through consultation.


We believe in representation beyond the party line. When you elect an MLA in your area, your concerns need to not only be heard, but dealt with provincially in a timely manner”, remarked Bolin, who will also be the party candidate for the riding of Peace River North.


We believe British Columbians should be able to call upon their Government and get an answer”.


We are Conservatives ... and we invite British Columbians from across the province, to be part of the change to a better, and more open, government”, Bolin concluded.

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
