“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

ALAN FORSETH -- Let’s make history; let’s bring about Change That Can Win. Let’s elect Ellis Ross leader of the BC Liberal Party


Tomorrow I'm voting for the future of BC. I'll be voting for Ellis Ross and his vision of Change That Can Win.

After watching and listening to what he had to say for several months early last year, I joined his campaign and became an active volunteer.


I did so because I have always believed in grassroots politics, and that to me is what Ellis Ross represents. He doesn’t have any agenda other than the desire for British Columbia -- and British Columbians -- to have a shared voice in seeking a better province.

As he himself has said, he is not your typical politician.  He came from simple roots, he worked hard with his hands, he was knocked down more than once and got back up.

Through that he has faced many of the same challenges as so many of us have.

Ellis has traveled this great province from the north, to the Rockies, to the Island, to the Fraser Valley, and the lower mainland and the Capital region meeting with thousands of British Columbians.

He’s seen “Beautiful BC” at it’s best – and he’s seen it at it’s worst after raging forest fires and floods. He’s always been the first one there, long before the governing party, because he wanted to see for himself what people were facing, and what was needed to help.

Ellis Ross knows that wherever we live, we are all proud British Columbians – no matter what our background ... no matter what our job ... no matter where we’ve come from.

It’s been said before, and it’s just as true today ... Ellis Ross is the right man, in the right place, at the right time.

Join with me and let’s make history ... let’s bring about Change That Can Win ... vote for, and let’s elect, Ellis Ross ... leader of the BC Liberal Party.

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
