The Liberal government hates social programs and it shows. This morning my remarks were dealing with parks but they cover the […]

Let’s take a trip down memory lane today – my memory lane anyway, for I suspect that a lot of you weren’t even gleams in your father’s eye in the 1950s. In 1961 I was in my 30th year – it was the year I articled with the late Tommy Griffiths and was, on May […]

Is Tiger finished (II)?

Can Tiger come back now that his divorce is final, Elin had been paid off and the children suitably dealt with?

More on legalized theft

Please tell me that I haven’t gone mad. Tell me that people in this province really do care for their environment; that they want to continue with public power through BC Hydro.
