“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

FELDSTED – The Great Reset for Canadians


It is not the reset the United Nations and World Economic Forum are proposing. We don’t need those unelected and unaccountable geniuses (in their minds) controlling our nation and our lives.

Even the dullest among us understand that we have locked ourselves into a downward spiral. When our spending consistently exceeds income, there can be no happy ending.

We have become a nation bound in the chains of failing ideologies and sacred cows. Our politicians are avoiding accountability and pretending that they have no viable solutions to continual deficits.

Enter Moya Greene with a no-holds-barred ground-shaking plan proposing everything from tax increases and deep spending cuts to streamlining the public service to privatization for the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador. This is a plan needed from coast to coast to coast.

Please take time to read the entire article. It is well worth it.

I do not advocate adopting the Greene report recommendation across all jurisdictions as impacts will vary from province to province. Still, we desperately need a new perspective and thinking outside the current political boxes that hem us in. We have not had a fresh approach to our difficulties in decades and, without creative thinking, will become victims of insolvency, runaway inflation, or likely both.

Failure to deal harshly with planning dependent on increased debt levels will drive our population into poverty and sharply reduced living standards. Our MPs, MLAs, and MPPs are directors of our governments and have an inescapable fiduciary responsibility to govern prudently. Continual deficit spending should land them in prison.

Tossing Justin Trudeau is not enough. We need governments committed to finding a path for us to live within our means. The alternative is for all but the most wealthy to suffer degradation of our living standards.

We need to dig in our heels and refuse to allow our governments to drive us into poverty so we will accept slavery. We are perilously close to that at present.

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

When necessary – and only when necessary – the Family Maintenance Enforcement Program can attach (garnish) wages

Alan Forseth ~~ Kamloops, BC ~~ May 15th Earlier this week (Monday May 13 th ) the BC government announced it would be establishing a new Crown agency to oversee the Family Maintenance Enforcement Program (FMEP).   They indicated that on or before the end of October, the provision of family maintenance services would transition from a contracted service provider, to the newly created Crown agency. Apparently, this was to ensure that family maintenance enforcement services for vulnerable British Columbians continue uninterrupted. Seeing this story, reminded me of a woman ( we’ll call her Mary Brown ) who had email me some time b ack about this very thing, and questions she had about how maintenance enforcement was imposed and enforced. She said to me, “ I’m just curious if you can get any statistics of the homeless men and woman, that have children, that they are paying family maintenance in support of their children”.  “I am not about to sugg
