Here's where we discuss Canadian, B.C., and Nanaimo's municipal politics.
What follows is an email I sent out (about a week ago) to friends and others people whom share an interest in many diverse topics:
The PTB (Powers That Be) tried to get the Patriot Act bill past 1993 when the van bombing of the WTC occurred. The FBI bundled the investigation and it was believed...
I read John Perkins Book (Confessions of An Economic Hit Man) about two years ago, and though some of the information it contained I already knew about. Like for example the US engineered overthrow, of several DEMOCRATICALLY elected governments around the world. Non the less Perkins book really...
So if more people did not vote in the BC election then did, some 52% stayed home, what does this say about our democracy? I will hazard a guess that the " mandate" that the BC Liberals have is really not a mandate, but rather a indication of how far the elected politicans of BC have lost touch with...
I have said in other posts on different boards that I believe this election would be one of the most important in our history. Very soon we will know how important.
We base our opinions on what we see and hear.
In our local communities we can see the things that need to change, and we can zero...
In trying to learn more about our candidates, I would like to know which retail businesses Mr. Manhas owns/operates. Can anyone tell me which retail business Jeet Manhas owns and/or operates?

What an orator, he waded in and dealt with the controversy surrounding him speaking there in a manner that I felt privileged to witness.
I almost felt sorry for the people who were yelling out, without him berating them in any matter. ( they were removed though).
Now I need help with this one, Who is this group?
Who do they represent?
Why would they have anything to do with buskers?
A report going before council on Monday from bylaw services on page #2 says Following the consultation process staff will prepare a revised bylaw for consideration by the...
I had to come in here to vent a little bit about my frustration with sign vandalism in Nanaimo this election. All over Nanaimo I see political signs that have been cut, painted/written on, knocked down & stolen. Both NDP and Liberal signs have been attacked, but obviously the Liberal signs are...

With the election approaching there is one thing that everyone in the province will see on their ballot, the STV referendum question again.
Last election this referendum to implement a Single Transferable Vote obtained almost 58% support but did not quite make the 60% required to make it law.
If you do not vote then maybe you should NOT take advantage of the following services brought to you by Government;
1) health care
2) roads and highways
"To be honest, I'm not completely surprised. There was definitely some animosity over it," he said. "Some Americans think they are the only country in the world."
Mr. Berry was absent from city council this evening. This did not surprise me as one councilor had said to me earlier in the day he didn`t think Gerry would be coming tonight to the city council meeting. I asked why? He said the last two times he had phoned Mr. Berry, Mr. Berry had sworn at him and...
A place to start the dialogue.
Because it incorporates a small part of north Nanaimo.

Chris Sholberg stated at a meeting recently that our project was on hold. We could not get the $30,000 budget required that was promised to us. So the plan was put on hold for 3 or 4 months.
