Buried on Page 2 of the Vancouver Province today, October 20, is a headline “Province halts major transmission system inquiry.” This means that, when you look behind the Campbell government’s never abating never ending fog about energy, this means that the BC Utilities Commission, the public’s watchdog will not carry on its independent investigation into […]

Damien Gillis’ video out of Trondheim, Norway’s recent Aquaculture trade show demonstrates the problem we British Columbians have which simply stated is this – neither of the two major political parties give a fiddler’s fart for the west coast fishery. Fisheries and Oceans Minister Gail Shea simply doesn’t concern herself with our plight and I’ve […]

There is a coming together of environmentalists unprecedented in my memory and much of the impetus will come from those opposed to fish farms and to the government rivers policy. This is a natural alliance since both deal with rights to water and healthiness of fish although the emphasis might be different from group to […]

The Battle has barely begun V

The summer has been a time for reflection for me as Official Spokesperson for Save Our Rivers Society. It was a tough election to lose and I think all involved on the losing side have had much to reflect upon. Now is the time to plan. It doesn’t take the brains of a Mensa to […]

Those who have followed my checkered career will know of my intense dislike of the CanWest dailies in our town, The Vancouver (Seriously West Coast) Sun and The Province. They are simply lousy papers who play down stories contrary to the government’s interest or policy and save their criticisms until after an election is safely […]

The battle has barely begun III

The Campbell government is a collection of dissemblers such that you can’t take anything they say seriously. The so-called “harmonized sales tax” is the latest example. And isn’t “harmonized” such a lovely warm and fuzzy word? In fact it is nothing more than a raising of the sales tax but to tell people that requires […]

I have been given strong legal advice not to call someone a liar because that implies that he is an inveterate liar. Because of this I need your help dealing with the BC Finance Minister, the Honourable Colin Hansen. Just prior to the last election, Mr. Hansen did a short interview, on camera. Let me […]

Last week I spoke to a large audience in Nelson where people are up in arms (figuratively) over the Glacier-Howser Independent power project. This followed on the heels of a public meeting in Kaslo (pop 1000) where 1100 showed up. These meetings raise the critical question as to what can be done. Trying to persuade […]
