British Columbia Families Hosed At The Pump

Canadian Gas Prices Oct. 31/19

Calgary .90/l
Toronto 1.09/l
Nanaimo 1.47/l

Prices have been rounded up to reflect a whole number for comparison.

Put simply, every 100 litres of gasoline you buy in beautiful British Columbia will cost you a whopping $57.00 more than it would in Alberta. It will also cost you $38.00 more than it would in Toronto.

Do the math ...... if you buy 200 litres of fuel each month you will have $114.00 less in your pocket in B.C. than in Alberta, and $76.00 less than if you lived in Toronto.

How many families living in B.C. would notice a big difference if they had an extra $100.00 or so to spend each month??

Ask your local NDP MLA how much of the pump price is directly related to government taxes and policy.

A Terrible Price Was Paid Yesterday

For what we so casually handle today

It is the veteran, not the preacher who has given us freedom of religion. 
It is the veteran, not the reporter who has given us freedom of the press. 
It is the veteran, not the poet who has given us freedom of speech. 
It is the veteran, not the campus organizer who has given us freedom to assemble. 
It is the veteran, not the lawyer who has given us the right to a fair trial. 
It is the veteran, not the politician who has given us the right to vote. 
It is the veteran who salutes the flag, who serves under the flag and whose coffin will be draped by the flag.

While we all enjoy the blessings that have come to our country we seem blind to the gradual erosion of those freedoms once held dear, once paid for with the blood of the brave.

Perhaps it is the fact the current generations have paid nothing for these freedoms they are handled so lightly. No longer honoring and giving place to the God who has kept our land and freedom is another cause behind our current decay.

I wonder if those in Flanders Field are resting, in light of what we have done with the freedoms they so dearly paid for??

Identity Theft Scam Via Canada Post

Official looking Revenue Canada Form

A friend of mine got the above package in the mail, looking very much like an official Revenue Canada document.

It came partially filled out with name and address and a request for some 'missing information' which includes SIN and birth date. It also comes with a handy self addressed and stamped return envelope.

These type of phishing documents are pretty common via email, but I don't think they are as common via Canada Post. So, beware!

Liberals Promise another $93.9 Billion Debt

Promise to run Canadians another $93,900,000,000.00 in debt over next four years

That is a campaign PROMISE which means it might be on the low side, but not the high side.

As reported in the National Post
The Liberals released their costed platform on Sunday, and it comes with big promises — and big spending. The party plans to run a $27.4 billion deficit in 2020-21, and then follow it up with deficits of $23.7 billion, $21.8 billion, and $21 billion in the following years. The Liberals do not have a plan to balance the budget;

Cost of Debt

As reported in the Financial Post
In 2016/17, interest payments on the federal debt will total $25 billion, which is more than what Ottawa plans to spend on transfers to Canadian families in the form of children benefits ($22 billion). It’s also equivalent to the federal government’s planned budgetary deficit ($25 billion). Put differently, in the absence of federal interest payments, Ottawa could wipe out its deficit this year, despite its marked increase in program spending.

Enslaving future generations

Perhaps Canadians have been blinded to the long term evil of deficit financing, as most households couldn't run without their credit. Credit actually makes slaves of us all and the debt we are running up will be an anchor around the neck of our great grandchildren.

With all the focus on the boogieman of climate change, the slight of hand artists wanting to run Canada are being allowed to steal from future generations.

Using credit cards to make credit card payment???

How long would you be able to use one credit card to borrow money to make the monthly payment on another card?? Sooner or later you will go broke.

There is no difference with national debt. This Liberal government plans on running deficit of $27.3 billion in their first year. The interest on the national debt is $25 billion. You don't need to be a finance wizard to realize that we are now paying interest by borrowing more money.

It is a fool's game.

NDP Vote Means Justin Trudeau PM

If you want another four more years of the Liberals then a vote for the NDP will insure that happens.

Sadly, during this election the Canadian voter has little real choice for change. If you are concerned about the spiraling deficits under the Liberals (past four years $20 billion/yr deficits) and four more years of planned deficits, you are faced with very little real choice. A vote for the NDP will just insure another four years of Liberal deficits and the only clear way to avoid that is to vote in a Conservative majority, which is highly unlikely in Canada.

I am old enough now, that I believe I am seeing the end of any semblance of true democracy in this country. On the upside, I won't have to endure it for that many more years. As governments rely more and more on voters who actually believe campaign promises and are now eyeing the 16 year old vote, unfortunately it would appear that Canada will be getting exactly the kind of government we deserve. 

God have mercy.

Climate Change Lies You Likely Believe

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

They did however spend some tax dollars on a bogus study of why we lead the nation in gasoline prices. Does anyone remember the conclusions or recommendations that came from that non-study??

Global Warming/Climate Change/ Climate Crisis

What's really behind the climate change crisis HYSTERIA??
 Images play an important role
Responsible Adults Should Be Ashamed

What is actually behind the whole Global Warming / Climate Change / Climate Crisis hysteria that is gripping the youth of the world can be summed up this way:

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

All governments embrace a narrative that will allow them to keep increasing taxes with virtually no push back from the poor old goose. After all, how can you possibly be opposed to saving the planet?

It is not surprising this can be sold to the impressionable youth who form opinions from tweets and other in depth forms of communication. It is also a noble cause to embrace by a generation that pretty much has no real compass or purpose for life.

Shameful Adult Driven Hysteria

Those adults who pretend to be leaders should hang their heads for the hysteria they are allowing to be whipped up in this youthful generation. People who are supposed to be leaders screaming an end to the planet in six to twelve years should be ashamed of themselves. They are acting totally irresponsibly for personal gain in the political arena.

Is the climate changing? It is always changing and has been since the ice age. Governments using this narrative to support increasing taxes offer no real plan that will reduce the consumption of fossil fuels which produce CO2 (which is NOT a pollutant), increased taxes at the pumps won't reduce consumption nor will it cause people to quit heating their homes. It will however give governments more and more tax dollars they can figure out how to spend.

At the same time keeping us distracted from how poorly we are actually being governed. Imagine a country as wealthy as Canada with a central government spending $355,000,000,000.00 annually and we still have pensioners making a choice between heat and food? More and more young people being lost to drugs and alcohol. A poorer and poorer working class that can't survive without a credit card and line of credit with the bank, and a car loan, and a first and sometimes second mortgage ............... why is that possible in such a wealthy land??

Never mind that, let's just focus on the climate boogeyman and people won't address the real issues facing Canadians.

It is an old fashioned notion we Canadians have relegated to the dust bin, but consulting with the One that created this place in the first place and giving Him place will solve all of the perils confronting mankind in this present hour.

Rather than resorting to that absurdity we will sooner consume Gore's KoolAid and wring our hands and whip up a hopeless youth with fear of impending doom.

It bears repeating:

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Canadian Media Rebranded

Is Liberal $600,000,000.00 media bailout
paying off in non-coverage of real issues?

Some appropriate logo redesigns?

When was the last time 'reporters' asked any real questions of this Prime Minister? His four year fiscal record is being eclipsed by his proposed deficits over the next four years if re-elected.

He is refusing to engage in any meaningful televised debates and is engaged in the age-old practice of promising goodies for everyone, of course he doesn't care that our great grandchildren are being robbed without any input.

That said, the other parties are engaged in the same tactic of promising the moon and stars if they are elected. Of course the boogeyman of climate change has been used effectively to stir everyone up over an emotional issue, no one can control. All the while no one has to deal with tough issues like the Canadian economy and out of control federal spending, landlocked natural resources, foreign investment leaving our country in droves and arguably a disastrous four years of incompetent government.

Port Alberni Mini Vacation

Stamp Falls
Bear Looking For Dinner
MV Frances Barkely
Early Morning On The Canal
Bamfield Coast Guard Station
Humpback Show Time

Port Alberni Mini Stacation

If you are looking for something to do in October might I suggest a short stay with our friends in Port Alberni. 

The Lady Rose Marine is offering a half price sale on their sailings to Bamfield for the month of October. For $40 you can enjoy a day long return trip from Port Alberni to Bamfield. This offers west coast scenery at it's finest and the MV Fances Barkely provides a comfortable trip regardless of weather. The galley onboard puts up reasonably priced good eats from breakfast through lunch fare. You can also buy beer and wine onboard.

The trip from Port Alberni to Bamfield offers a variety of wildlife from eagles, bears, sea lions and humback whales to name a few.


A visit to Stamp Falls Park is always enjoyable where you can watch migrating salmon battle up the falls in their final quest to provide the next generation. The fish ladder provides and 'easier' path for those that find it.

Further up river from the falls we were treated to the site of Mama bear fishing to feed herself and her set of triplets, all of which could be seen at one time. A lone male was also spotted further up the river also trying his luck as an angler. While we observed neither bear were successful in their quest for a salmon dinner.

It is a good way to spend a couple of days and I'm sure a little input into the local economy would be appreciated as currently the big payroll in town is still behind a picket line.


Why Is Trudeau Ducking Public Debates???

Are selfies and photo ops 
all it takes to be elected in Canada????
This National Post article chronicles the number of public 'events' Prime Minister Justin Trudeau participated in back in 2016 when riding the crest of his public approvals.

Now after demonstrating his leadership these past four years, it begs the question of why he is ducking meaningful public debates, which are down from 5 during the last election to 2 or 3 (with one in French) where he could be held accountable based on his track record.

National Post article claims the Canadian public is being denied the opportunity to see Justin Trudeau defend his foreign policy record in a forum that provides substantive and sustained fashion.

Buying Votes With More Deficit Funding
This National Post article shows the cost of the Liberals promises which include running deficits in excess of $20 billion in each of the following four years. This seems to have abandoned the last election promise to balance the budget by 2019.
