“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

BC Liberals join calls for vaccine rollout plan clarity


The BC Liberals are calling for increased clarity on John Horgan and the NDP government’s vaccination delivery plan for British Columbians following significant public confusion over the lack of details and specifics about the rollout.

British Columbians are being given few details about how the COVID-19 vaccine rollout is meant to happen throughout our province. Other jurisdictions, like Alberta, have publicized specific timelines and laid out clear plans for who gets the vaccine and when,” said BC Liberal Health Critic Renee Merrifield.

People are looking to this government for a detailed plan that answers important questions like how it is being distributed, what the timelines are, and why there are differences in health authorities. Everyone deserves more answers than what they’ve been getting from John Horgan and the NDP so far.”

The lack of details in the province’s current vaccination plan has created confusion about when vaccination will begin in the wider population, how it will be tracked, and how it will be delivered.

Right now, you have people on the frontline, including teachers and first responders, who are still in the dark as to whether they will be a priority group to receive the vaccine and when that would even occur. It’s unacceptable to have this level of uncertainty at this stage,” added BC Liberal Education Critic Jackie Tegart.

People here in B.C. have high expectations from this government to deliver the vaccine but the current NDP plan leaves British Columbians with more questions than answers.”

As of today, British Columbia’s publicly available plan for vaccine distribution still consists of a single webpage on the BC Centre for Disease Control’s website.

KURT PEATS: Does Somebody Have to Die Before the Cops do Something? ... or ... Why Don’t You Go and Catch Some Real Criminals?

We live in a topsy-turvy world.     Watching the evening news simply confirms that the chimpanzees are indeed in charge of guarding the bananas.   I’ve been a police officer for a quarter of a century and have been called upon to try and settle disputes that took many years to develop.   In fact, most disputes are far more complex than what a 30-second sound bite can possibly convey.     Did you ever wonder why the cops didn’t act when it is blatantly obvious that a person or a group of persons were breaking the law ?    The job of the police is complicated at the best of times. The officer is called upon to deal with both criminal and civil matters, and sometimes these matters are occurring simultaneously.    On a Saturday night, after dealing with the mud, the blood and the beer, (the criminal law side of the house), the officer will eventually deal with the ensuing family break-up, child custody issues (the civil law side of the house) and the like.

TODD STONE -- I have decided that I will not be a candidate to be the next leader of the BC Liberal Party at this time

  The past few months have been a difficult time for our party. Following the resignation of our former leader, I have been carefully considering whether this was the right time for me to once again put my name forward for the leadership of the BC Liberal Party.   I focused on building out a core team and engaged with hundreds of British Columbians. A talented, growing campaign team, a strong fundraising group, and supporters in every corner of the province were at the ready to formally launch a campaign.   However, after spending the holidays with my family carefully weighing the decision, I have decided that I will not be a candidate to be the next leader of the BC Liberal Party at this time.   Life’s most important decisions are those made with your heart. I am forever grateful for the support Chantelle and our three daughters have provided me throughout my political career. But it was driven home to me recently that my daughters don’t know a time when their dad wasn’t

Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers says the natural gas and oil industry can be a foundation for national economic recovery

  On the good news front for 2021, the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP) is forecasting a 14 per cent increase in upstream natural gas and oil investment in 2021 – an expected increase of $3.36 billion this year, reaching $27.3 billion.   The planned investment for 2021, while increasing from the lowest levels in more than a decade, would halt the dramatic decline seen since 2014, when investment sat at $81 billion. This year’s forecast represents a stabilizing of industry investment and the beginning of a longer-term economic recovery.   The additional spending is primarily focused in Alberta and British Columbia, while numbers in Saskatchewan show modest improvement and offshore investment in Atlantic Canada is expected to remain relatively stable compared to 2020.   Stated Tim McMillan, President and CEO of the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers: “ It is a positive sign to see capital investment numbers moving up from the record lows of 202
