“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

FORSETH: The truth really needs to come out -- especially why duffel bags filled with cash being dumped on casino counters went on unhindered

 


In the past I made comment numerous times that the former BC Liberal government was "addicted" to the revenues they received from the ever-expanding lottery and casino gravy train.

I said it was sick and disgusting, and on top of that, they were robbing (at least in my opinion) monies from community groups and organizations that should have been benefiting from gaming revenues.

On that topic alone, here is what I had to say in December 2016:

All I can say is, it's abundantly clear that while the BC Liberal government continues to strip more and more money from British Columbians, through every increasing schemes for new lottery games and casino expansion, the community groups and organizations that should be benefiting, are instead being shortchanged hundreds of millions every year.

Who do you think should be the recipients of the increased revenue?  I know who Christy Clark and the BC Liberal government think should be ... and it's certainly not community non-profit groups and organizations.

But back to the former Liberal government addiction to gaming revenue, and the questionable behaviors which were happening at BC casinos.

As this news story from last night states, those responsible for turning a blind eye to illegal activity are finally going to be called to testify at the Cullen Commission. Those individuals include former Solicitor’s General Kash Heed and Rich Coleman, former Attorney General and now interim leader of the BC Liberals Shirley Bond, former Finance Minister Michael De Jong, all the way to the top and former BC Premier Christy Clark.

All of these individuals turned a blind eye to millions in unsourced cash that flooded into BC casino’s ... again (in my option) because of their addiction to the revenues it generated for government coffers.

Sadly, it's highly likely they will use 'Cabinet privilege' to get away with saying nothing ... and admitting nothing.

That’s a shame, because the truth really needs to come out --- especially why those duffel bags filled with cash being dumped on casino counters, which we keep seeing in news stories, went on unhindered.

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
