Ironically, there is a group that includes someone from the District who have been soliciting my involvement in a proposed plan to put in a plant in the District to recycle 10,000 to 20,000 tonnes per year of old gypsum wallboard into new products through the company I currently run (Castagra Products, Inc.). Unfortunately, this is still a dirty place to do business in as Nanaimo / Wellington has been since the Dunsmuir union vs scabs era. I sent an email today about this to one of them who came to Alberta last month to check out what we were doing there. We have helped our Alberta affiliate increase from from 24 to 38 employees at that location in the last four weeks! Expecting that number to go to 50 in the next two months. We'll keep the jobs in the US and Alberta where the bureaucrats don't have as much power and influence as they do in the District.
My preference, as I have written before, is to have them buzz off and not torment my almost 80 year old father who I hear called these people some pretty nasty names and ran one of them down in his wheelchair. That is what I have been hearing anyway although it might be an exaggeration. All of this was apparently recorded on taxpayer-funded District video so I should remember to bring popcorn for the courtroom viewings. I hope they don't kill him in the meantime. He says he felt good after booting them off the property. I think he gets a kick from all the attention. I'd hate to see him getting bored just building dozens of those masterpiece ship models (worth $40k-$100k each) that are ending up in museums and institutions all over the world as donations. I am surprised that taxpayers don't seem to care at all about this type of waste and abuse of their money by public officials. Am I wrong about that or are we a bunch of sheep?
